Game delays lose 
CD32 




?ALES of Commodore's CD32 console aft? being lost 
htnuugarn-- |']i.!ii'..H-,i in: ilu- system Ml i""! . : :-pi.M!. n.i, 
ai time, Amiga Computing can. 

.More than 40 lilies were originally promised for the 
Tnachine by Christmas, but we have learned that bunch 
dales are slipping on many. 

At the time of gewng to pres* only a handful were avail- 
able, although Commodore had earlier expected IS to 
have been on sale by the end of September. 

Many are now promised within the next few weeks, but 
without high quality software on sale during the early 
Christmas buying period, some shoppers are turning to 
alternative system- 

Sega and Nintendo have just unveiled new packs and 
Although their machines offer lower specifications, console 
en are being attracted by their huge- software cata- 
.ogues. 

Darren Booth, the assistant manager at one electronics 
• in Manchester, told ui that some customers who look 
first at the CD32 are then buying a Sega or Nintendo turn- 
sole. He said people are impressed by the number of 
jjames available - and especially Sega titles Street Fighter 
and Mortal Kombal - although he was satisfied with CD32 
nkeso&r, 

Of the developers, Millennium have stuck close to their 




plans but several others we spoke to blamed development 
delays as the main reason for late launches. 

Three titles will appear from Ocean Software before 
Christmas - at CD32's launch they had promised sis. 

The firm's spokesman Steven Hayes wid h'K'' 1 """filia- 
tions are holding back the release of Jurassic Park and 
CD32-specifie titles are taking longer to program than 
planned. 

Thalion's Tony King, meanwhile, said his company have 
scrapped plans to support the console, although the rights 
to [ioriheart have been passed to another software house. 

And at System 3 operations manager Tim Best said: "We 
aw certainly making a heavy commitment tn CIX52- but 
we're not rushing into iL" 

He explained the firm will be launching at least one

game in the nest few weeks but certainly not the four 
Commodore claim are due from the company by the end of 
the year 

Several other companies reported products in the final 
stages of development, although said production of some 
had slipped, Gremlin, one of the biggest CD32 developers, 
were unavailable for comment. 

Commodore spokesman Tim Green was unaware of the 
delays and expected around 40 CD32-specifk titles to be 
available by Christmas as planned.

THE publishers of Amiga word processors 
Final Copy It and Pen Pal claim their blest 
package produces documents as profes- 
sionally as expensive PC and Apple 
Macintosh systems. 

Softwood's {0773 838781) Final Writer 
uses one-touch Command buttons to 
enable the user to create documents easily, 
v, ith many function accessed by a mouse 
click. Its features include auto-indexing, a 



table of contents, a table of illustrations, 
■spelling checker, thesaurus and several 

graphics functions. 

It has a comprehensive range of print 
options and uses PostScript font outline 
for high quality output without the need 
for a PostScript laser printer. 

But people using such a machine will 
find a range ut extra l-eiu-JiK si;.Ji .is 



document will print - scaling, half toning 
and crop marks. 

The £129,95 package comes with more 
than 100 typefaces and 100 EPS clip art 
Images. It needs at least 1 .5Mb of memory 
and a hard drive.

Printer maker targets Amiga 

CITIZEN are set to target the 
Ami^a market as pdri hi i new 
strategy aimed at making the 
firm one of Europe's key printer 
suppliers. 

They will make hi-spec, low- 
cost, colour-capable models for 
office and home users, and have 
already announced details of 
new products for that section of 
the market. 

The Pro Jet II Inkjet offers 
laser-duality output at 300 dots 
Per inch and speeds of three 
pages per minute in draft and 
two pagiw per minute in letter- 
quality mode. 

The £304 machine contains three letter quality fonts - Courier, Letter Gothic and Times 
Nordic - and a built-in sensor which detects when ink is running- low. 

But Citizen see one of the machine's biggest strengths in its low running costs - claimed to 
be two pence per page. 

"Separating the ink cartridge from the print head allows the cartridge to be replace! 12 
times on average within the life of a single print head," said marketing manager Julie 
HahWel!- "This keep running costs substantially lower than many other Inkjet printers, where 
the head is disposed of at the end of the life of each cartridge." 

A cofcut version of Projet 11 will be released early next year, at which time the firm will 
also launch AWL', an "ultra-low end" dot matrix machine targeted at first time printer buyers. 

It will come with Amiga software designed to help newcomers get slatted and automati- 
cally LnKt.i 1 1 drivers, and have a print spifd nl N2 characters per second in draft mode, 

In letter quality mode Ihe speed will be 72cps, and users of the £233 machine will have a 
choice of five fonts. An optional colour kit will cost £29.99.

Nothing's Final.. 



SoftWood is no! your typical software company Standard industry 
practice is to slarl advertising - or at least hyping - products many 
months before they're available Nol SoftWood, though. The com- 
pany released the new Final Writer ward processor before adver- 
tisements even hit the US magazines-, and only scant days after 
ads appeared m the UK 

This new word processor resembles Final Copy II, but sports 
tons ol new leatures Ifs more comparable to the expensive pro- 
lessional PC word processors than competing Amiga products. 

It borrows the popular butlon bar concept from Windows pro- 
grams such, as Ami Pro or Word lor Windows 6.0. II has 180 differ- 
ent tuitions which you can drag and drop onto up to eight stnps 
{you could creale one strip lor graphics functions, one for text lor- 
malling.andsoon), 

Vou can nol only map buill-in Final Writer commands to Ihe 
buttons, but also AmsgaDQS commands, and AFtexx commands 
and scripts. You can even map text strings Id Ihem, so you could 
creale a button to automatically insert your name and address in a 
document. 

Final Writer has full support For loading IFF graphics, like Final 
Copy II, but il also supports Encapsulaled PostScript (EPS) out- 
fine graphics. Unlike most programs, Final Wnter will prim EPS 



graphics on non-PostScript primers, Graphics, as well as text, can. 
be rolaled on tfte page in one-degree increments. 

Vou can even group graphics - Final Writer crosses the woid 
processor line into desktop publishing lemilory in many respects.. 

That's nol to say the program skimps on word processing capa- 
bilities. Along wilh all the standard editing capabilities you'd expect. 
as wefl as a high-qualify spelling checker and Ihesauius, Final 
Wriler also sports sophisticated indexing capabilities, 

Olher professional features include Table of Contents. 
Endnotes, Bibliography, and Outline generation. You can even cre- 
ale a Table of Illustrations tor Ihe graphics used in your document 

Smart hyphenation makes for professional-looking left, and sec- 
tioned documents with multiple master pages makes long-docu- 
menl publication easy on the Amiga for the first tone. 

If lhat wasn't enough. Final Writer also includes 120 high-quality 
PostScript outline fonts (it supports Compugraphic and MimbusG 
fonts as well), 1 00 EPS clip-art images, and 25 AfleK* macros.

COM M E NT 



When Kenneth Clarke m4de ii clear that this 
autumn's, budget would include the impo- 
sition of VAT on magazine, book, arid 
newspaper sales, the publishing business groaned as one, 
When he later hinted that he wasn't in favour of the dghl 
per cert middle lax rate. the groan became a wail of 
despair. 

It doesn't take a maths professor to work out that 17.5 
per cent VAT will hike tile cover price of a double disk 
magazine by Slip, bringing the 15 compute* marine a 
step ClCRWT. 

Ordinary single disk magazines, which currently wll 
i^r about £3.25, tv i U increase in price to around £3.82, 
making them almost as expensive as- double disk issues 
are today, and the effects of such swingeing tacreases 
could be very damaging te the industry. 

The Amiga enthusiast is a voracious reader, and sur- 
veys carried out by the major magazines have always 
confirmed that many of us buy two or three different 
titles a month. 

However, this sort of broad reading habit will cost 
£1.6tl more once VAt descends like a financial damp 
blanket, and if readers start to restrict themselves to fewer 
magazines, sales as a whole will feel the squeeze. 

Now this could just be the wringing of s group of 
profitable companies who an.' unwilling to do their bit to 
dig us out of our "awful hole", to quote one Cabinet min- 
ister, but at the Amiga industry as whole depends on 
publicity to get the message about new products to the 
public, falling magazine sales could damage everyone. 

In a worst case scenario, one or more of the smaller 
magazines might WW) wind up, a danger which particu- 
larly threatens th* gamesHartly titles. Pressure from con- 
soles and the It Is one thing, but when it is aided and 
abetted by the Chancellor, things could get sticky. 

The last audited circulation figures for the big three 
magazines - Amiga Computing, CU Amiga, and Amiga 
Format - showed healthy increases in sales (our oWS went 
up by 13%), confirming that the Amiga has made a come 
back thanks to the competitive price of the At2fl0 and the 
continuingly high standards in software. 

When the market is on such an upswing after a lengthy 
recession, the prospect of its publicity being restricted by 
govemmfnl taxes is an even more alarming one. 

Things aren't all black, of course, and we at least dmi'l 
have a magazine market which depends entirely on low 
prices for its sales, The PC shopping magazines, some as 
big as telephone directories, depend on very low cover 
prices and hog*- sales to keep readership up and draw in 
the advertising revenues. If VAT lakes the price of such a 



The AC team 



The 
VATman 

cometh 




Whether you call it a tax on knowledge, sensible 

fiscal policy, or a desperate attempt to retrieve the 

£50 billion deficit from the man in the street, VAT on 

magazines is about to happen, and it won't be good 

news for publishers or their readers 






magazine closer to the point where it is no longer a cheap 

impulse buy or second purchase, it could lose ten percent 
of its readership at a stroke, with a subsequent loss in 
advertising. Everyone will he taxed at the same rate, of 
course, but the effects will depend upon each magazine's 
market position. 

What is giving everyone in the publishing business a 
headache at the moment, though, is the fact that no one 
really knows what will happen nest April when the price 
of the printed word rockets. 

You, the reader, will suffer directly by paying more for 
your magazine, but in the long run a few benefits could 
come your way. A VAT-induced price rise, if it results b 
restricted sales, might prompt the major magazines * 
even more generous promotions than before, and we all 
know what that means. Intense competition in the Amiga 



magazine market has led to the free distribution of superb 
commercial software worth, 10 date, hundreds of pounds 
the cover mounting of useful books, such as seen on last 
month's AQ and a huge Increase in the number of con 
hons, reader offers, and other inducements to part with £4 

Not many readers would complain if this marketing 
war was to step up a notch and brin^ even better freebie- 
to the newsagent's shelves, 

One definite opportunity next year will be youi 
chance to beat the las by taking out a subscription |u-- 
befon the rise comes into force. At a stroke, any regular 
reader will be able to save 17.5 per cent, and probably a lot 
more, as we bung our usual subs ription otters <>n to

I ake 2 is a combination ol what 
is known as a "tine t 
and an Animation edi 
is designed to be used in conjunct) 
with a paint package such as DPaml 
theVidi Amiga dig itiser. 

For all those millions of Amiga ov 
era who have a copy of DPaint and i 
thousands who took advantage of < 
Vidi Amiga of let earlier this year. Tak 
is I he icing on the animation cake. 

The program will either control Virji 
Amiga directly allowing users to grab 
video or hand drawn images straight 
inio its frame bank, or accept a series of 
frames from an animation package such 
as OPainl, then give the user total con- 
trol over ihe finished cartoon or movie. 

Star) by booting from the Take 2 
CoverDlsk (de-archiving won 1 work if 
you boot from another disk), then dou- 
ble click on the two icons it conlains. 

This will star! a de-archiving process

onimation editor 



FUSION PAINT 





n ,-ich will create two disks, one 

ing the Take 2 program, the other 

crammed with sound effects for use in 

animations. 

Once Take 2 has de-archived, re-boot 
with the newly created disk and double 
click on the Take 2 program icon. When 
the program loads you will be looking al 
a blank screen made up of live main 
columns, one for the soundtrack nnd 
one each for the four levels ol animation 



Take 2 will control. 

This screen is Ihe exposure sheet, or 
XSheet, and is the central control room 
tor all Take 2 functions. With four levels 
ol animation, Ihe user has huge llexib'l- 
ily. For example, a DPaint animation 



involving a couple of cartoon chanctm 
running around against a backdrop. 
such as Tom and Jerry chasing each 
other around a kitchen, involves ttw 
user in drawing all elements - Tom 
Jerry, and the kitchen - into each framt 



Fusion Paint 



Fusion Paint is a simple painl package licking some of the 
advanced features found in DPaint, but it has a couple of 
very useful advantages. First of all it is faster than DPaint 
for many operating And secondly it can be used to edit at 
fix-ate icon images. 

As usual. Fusion Paint is archived on disk, so boot from 
the Fusion Paint CoverDisk and double click on the Make 
Fusion icon. The de-archiving process will format a blank 
disk and unpack ihe Fusion archive onto it, and. once it's fin- 
ished you should boot fawn the new disk. 

The first thing you'll see on starting Fusion Paint is a 
screen format requester which offers a variety of screen sizes 
and number of colours for your new drawing. Choose one 
from the buttons on display or type a screen ike into the 
string gadgets below, then click Cfl start. 

A blank screen will appear with the usual tool bo* down 
the right hand side. Most of the took shown should be famil- 
iar as they are similar to the tools found in any other paint 
package. Or* mapr difference, however, is that when some 
of the tools are clicked on, a number of optional tools appear 
in the area below the main tool bos. 

Experiment with Fusion's drawing tools for a while. We 
won't be covering these in detail as they should be self- 
explanatory. 

Let's concentrate instead on exploring Fusion's icon fea- 
tures- Hold down the right mouse button and choose the 
Open,,. Icon -option from Hie Project menu. 

Click once on the screen to tell Fusion where to place the 




the Fuiisn dhb tonlvtiti »nw qrrttl fantt 

icon, then a file requester will appear, Now choose the 
Fusion Paint program file as your icon and load it up- 

The icon will appear as two images, one which appease 
when the icon is first displayed, and one which Ls displayed 
when the icon is clicked on, This second image is known as 
the alternate image and should always be the right half of an 

mm image. 

It is possible to load or savt? tingle icon images, and these 
are known as back-fill complement icons, This means that 
when clicked on the image simply fills in with another 
colour or charges to the complement colour depending on 



whether there is an outline around the image or not 

For now we'll stick to alternate icons as they are mm 
fun, and create a little man who waves his hand when the 
icon in clicked. Well need to draw a cartoon picture, so the 
artistically challenged should either leave the room or mi* 
sure no-one can come in half way th rough the tutorial 

Right, draw a head and shoulders picture of a penaa 
with upraised arm and a big cheesy grin. Fusion's freehaed 
drawing tool should be alt that's needed for this, though thr 
circle tool could come in handy for the eyes and the mb 
lens will be handy for small details. 

Once this image is finished, click on the Oil brush tool i 
has a pair of scissors on it) and cut around the little man. i 
cot window will appear in the top left-hand comer shewng 
our brush, and if it meets with your approval. dLl 
Paste tool (ti has a big brush on it). 

OUTLINES 

Now paste the brush one pixel to the- right of the ongMi, 
taking care to make sure that the outlines of the two maps 
touch but don't overlap. 

We now have two identical images and if we saved ** 
icon immediately it would appear that nothing happens* 
when the icon was clicked on, so we have to make chants 
to the alternate (right-hand) image. 

Try changing the position of the arm Of the facial i 
sion until something approaching a reaction can be 
from one image to the next. So long as there's enough i 
ence between the two images we'll know we've clicked 
the icon, so feel free to indulge yourself. The zoom km 
(magnifying glass tool) is particularly useful for this tor. : 
detail work. When the alternate image has been edited t

Using Tate 2, Ihe user can create (he 
two animated characters and load them 
» levels one and two, then the kitchen 
tockdrop and load it as level three. 
When Take 2 plays the animation back 
to the user, ihe three levels are superim- 



posed on each other and a frame made 
up from all four levels. 

Levels can thus be edited separately 
from each other without the hassle of 
having lo re-draw an entire frame, such 
as would he the case in any other ani- 



mation package. Remember - Take 2 is 
not an animation creation program, but 
art animation controller and editor. 

To demonstrate the program in 
action, the Take 2 disk contains a simple 
two-level animation called "'arrowhil" 



which we will now load. Hold down the 
right mouse button to reveal the menu 
bar. and choose Ihe XSheet menu 
There is a load option with three sub- 
items to enable the loading of tracks, an 



Tour taste choose the Save As... Alt icon option from the 
1 1 menu. To save the icon we must tell Fusion where it 
b. so we must now draw a box around our waving man. 

Make sure tiut the box is tight around both images with 

-p.ik'e to spare, then click the left mouse button, at which 
point a file requester will appear, 

There's no need to save your icon with the usual .info 
^tension, as Fusion saves the image as an IFF Inrush and 
that brush as an icon for itself. If you save to the RAM disk, 
. back to Workbench for a quick look at your finished 
Don 

Another of Fusion's more advanced features is its use of 
■u .in-.l iimif, .ir.J there are several superb fociti on Hi* 
Fusion Paint CoverDisk. First, U. 5 I's select a font by clicking 
an the Font gadget, which It denoted by two Fs. 

Fusion will search the current fonts directory, which 




should be its own if you have booted from the Fusion disk, 
then present you with a list of those it has found. For now, 
choose- the Cametol font and dick an the disk icon in the tower 

right-hand corner of the tool box to load the font from disk. 

Mow that we have a. font, click on the test loo] (it has a large 
T on it) and you should see- a string gadget appear on screen. 
Type whatever text you require in here and press Return. 

The text should appear on-screen and you can position it 
anywhere by clicking at the desired position or dragging it 
around with ihe left mouse button. 

Once satisfied with the positioning, click on the checkmark 
box in the lower right of the screen to fix the text in place, at 
which point Vou should notice the next line of ti-\t is u'liitin^ 
below the first, neatly justified. 

Fusion's third special talent is its ability to grab screens 
from any other package currently running. To do this, simply 
select the grab screen option from the main menu bar and con- 
firm that you would like to proceed, Fusion will then wait ten 
HOOfidl .ind >;rab whichever screen is presently being dis- 
played. 

All the user need do is set the grabbing process going, then 
flip to the screen to be grabbed using left Amiga-N or M and 
wait for two yellow flashes. 

The first warns yon that grabbing is about to take p3ace, the 
h..'.. i .ml tii.it it has finished, and when you flip back to Fusion, 
the screen should be loaded up ready rot editing. 

That's about all We have space for in these pages, but the 
remainder of Fusion's features need little introduction. The 
program works in much the same way as DPaint and other 
paint packages, and if you have any real difficulties, there's a 
generous manual offer on a page not a million miles from 
here...

Magic Menu 

Author: Martin Korndorfer 

Do you get into a dither about drop downs? Are your pull 
downs a pain? Him you need a pop up menu system 

Pop up menu programs which replace the Workbench 
menus arc nothing new and have been around far years 
now, but Magic Menu is one of the neatest and most 
attractive yet. 

Lt runs -is a Workbench 2 and upwards commodity 
e : tlier from Workbench or through Ihe WBStarrup drawer, 
and patches Intuition to replace the menus of any system- 
legal program launched thereafter with its own much 
piece glitzy offerings. 

Once run, the program makes if possible to activate 
menus with a right mouse burton click anywhere in the 
screen rather than having to move the mouse pointer to 
the mem bar. The menus will pop up (hence thf name) 
light beside the mouse pointer, making it a fester and eas- 
ier job to access them.. 

This surt of easy access can be a real boon when using a 
program which relies heavily on menus or if you're one of 
tho« users who can't be bothered to Icam all these tricky 
keyboard shortcuts. For such users, Magic Menu offers a 
neat, stylish answer to all drop down dilemmas. 

The program treats menus as two distinct types - pull 
down (the usual menu bar jobs) and pop up, offering the 
user a chance to configure how they work independently 
of each other. 

When the right mouse button is held down while the 
pointer is in the menu bar, drop downs of the traditional

ihe screen, pop ups appear. In this way, users can have 
their cake and eat it - pop ups for when they're feeling 
bodacious, drop downs for those "back lo momma" days. 

There are three ways in which either type Df menu can 
work - Standard, Press Once, and Select. Standard is the 
usual way ot holding the right mouse button down all the 
tune the menu is visible, then releasing it when the tit-sired 
option is highlighted, but the other two ritoii operandi are 
just a teensy bit radical. 

Press Once \ s a method whereby the right mouse but- 
ton activates the menu, which will then stay on-screen 
after the button is released- 

As the pointer is moved, options are highlighted as if 
the button was still depressed, and the user just taps the 
right squeaker once more to make his or her selection. This 



is a good method for those with lazy fingers and 
menus through which to bra v. •-.. 

Select is a little weird and works somewhat Use * 
menu in that the right mouse button calls the menu i 
screen, (hen the left button is used to click on the i 
and sub-items. Not very trad, but good soul food tor 
who use PCs at the office and need some serious i 
bashing after a bard day's work. 

To top of the bill of fare (pun definite!) mis 
Magic Menu gives one the option to control 
through the keyboard. Yes! Now you rodent hatei

We'll now take a quick look at creat- 
ing a scene from scratch. If you like, 
you cart save the current scene com- 
plete with sound sample information 
using the Save.., Scene option from 
the X Sheet menu. 

Now choose New,.. Scene to clear 
the decks, then go fa the panels menu 
and activate the pictures panel. Once

When the file requester appears, 
choose the pics directory from the 
Take 2 disk and click with the left 
mouse button on mr1, dragging it 
down to highlight all eight picture files. 

Click on Load, then the Cancel but-

lures panel. To insert the images, click 
on ihe film strip gadget in the botlom 



then an the black box with a while out- 
line, which tells Take 2 lo pasta the 
tures to Ihe currently active level, 

We can now see the animation by 
using Hipper again, and add an effect or 
Iwo. If you have a tool step sample, per- 
haps on hard drive or among your sam- 
ple library, this might be a good time to 
use It, 

Adding a second level is easy. Load 
OPaint and draw a simple road graphic 
which rolls into Ihe background over an 
eight frame loop, stick a bush or lamp 
post in to give the illusion of movement, 
I hen save Ihe eight frames in a directory 
an disk. 

Make sure that the background is tl 
same resolution as our example piccli 
(lo-res 320 x 256) as Take 2 won t mix 
pictures of different resolutions. 

COLOURS 

This applies to colours as well, so you'll 
have to ensure that the road is a simple 
black-and-white lest image. Take 2 is 
line tester, as we've already mentlonec. 
and is designed to help you try different 
animation ideas, then test them at the 
line drawing stage. 

Levels show through each other as 
greyscale images, successive levels 
laying down on top ol each other so Ihe 
lurthest away level, or backdrop, should 
normally be in level one. 

In next mo nib's Amiga Computing 
we'll be looking at some ot the more 
advanced uses of Take 2, so don't mir

DSound 130 

Author: Dave Schreiber 

DSound is a simple utility which enables the playing ot 
long samples direct from disk, hard or floppy. Itius saving 
oodles of precious chip memory. It works from CLI only, 
apd il you want to give it a go, type: 

CD IT5;D5(HJK[lS0

•l you didn't boo! from the CoverDisk, go immediately lo 
to not pass Go or collect £200. and make sure lo 
replace SYS with the drive number in which the CoverDisk 
'jeen placed. 

As the on-disk docurnantalion points out, there aie a 
number of parameters attached to this command. There 
are flags to play (tie sample through left or righl speakers, 
set the volume, force the sample lo loop, and lots of other

DropBox 

Author: Steve Anichini 



Yet another commodity prugram for Workbench 2 and 

above, Lto.»p R«* is designed to lake the drudge out of 
those- boring household chores you have to da time and 
time again. You know - washing the dishes, de-arehiv- 
ing things;, arid the- like. 

By simply telling DropBn* that any time a file is 
passed to it which has the suffix .ma (to take only one 
example), the faithful little chap can be programmed to 
carry out an automatic command, such as de-archiving 
the file and placing the contents in RAM. thus saving 
you a (ot of that opening Shell and typing in the com- 
mand sort of ir.il.H 1 1-\ 

When run, PropBox leaves an icon on Workbench 
unto which any icon or file can be dropped (DropBox, 
geddii?). The hapless file will be ruthlessly rushed to 
Bit program, thoroughly interrogated, and dealt with 
contemptuously. Sort of a Workbench friendly neigh- 
bourhood Bobby, when you think about it. 

For a demonstration,, run the program then double 
click on the DropBox left out tin your Workbench 
screen. This will bring up an interface with a list of pre- 
sets on the right and a number of options on the left. 

To begin with, the program looks in HNV: for its pre- 
sets, but for the purposes of the CoverDisk we've had to 
put them in the DropfJox drawer, so hold down the 
right mouse button and select open from the project 



menu. Load Drop Box's prct's file and check it out. 

The Lha entry, for example, tells DropBox that any 
file with the appender .lha should be dearchived with 
KAM: as the destination drawer. To add anuther, ■click 
on the Add button and type PPShow in the string 
gadget 

We don't have to bother about a destination as we 
know PPShow will send its results to the screen as a 
picture, so type PPSHOW in the command gadget to 
tell old thickie which C: command to invoke, then type 
ICOM] fSOURCE] in the template string. 

DrupBoK always need this basic template to tell it to 
carry out the specified command on the source, or file 
which had been dropped onto it. Finally; use the pat- 
tern tf?.iff and click on the output button, The program 
is now set up to use PPShow on any file with [fee 
suffix, iff. 

TheTe are a thousand uses tor this program, from 
viewing piecies and text to launching ARexx macros, 
but you'll have to read the on-disk docs for a bmm 
detailed run down of the possibilities-

Mousometer 

Authors: W Breyha 
and M Matzl 

A neat little Workbench hack, this program 
Is designed to provide what must be one of 
Ihe most pointless computer statistics of all time 
- the distance your mouse has travelled in 
kilometres. 

Jusi run the program and watch the window in 
the top right-hand corner of Ihe screen as your 
mouse is moved, drool as those metres mount up, 
I hen swagger off down Ihe pub to lean noncha- 
lantly on the bar boasting about how you ran that 
rodenl ragged 

There s a high score labia to keep track ol 
those marathon mouse marches, and Ihe About 
function which you can access Irom a menu leMs 
you how many miles you have travelled, what this 
is as a fraction ol the earth's circumference, and 
your average speed in metres per hour. All totally 
haisiand. as I'm sure you'll agree. 



Army Miner 

Author: Alain Lafferiere 

Minesweeper is a game which has had many followers and J 
many clones, but they all follow Ihe same format. A grid of 
squares is littered with mines and you have lo proceed to 
uncover all the safe squares by the use of your tired noggin 

If an uncovered square has mines in any of the adjaoeoi 
squares, it will show a number to tell you how many then? 
are, and by working out the most probable free square* 
ynu jjingcrlv top with the k'tl rnouv button until vug clear 
the board nr r as is more often the case, step cm the wrong 
square and meet your bum on the way back down, 

There are four levels of play: Beginner, Advanced. 
Expert, and Custom, each differing from the others in the 
size of grid to be cleared and the percentage of bombs m 
the grid. 

An Undo burton is available if you think you deserve 
another chance, and the gjsme can be paused if you're play- 
ing against the clock and want to cheat, but otherwise (Ha 
just a very nicely presented version of an old favourite 
which, if you're an old fan of Danger UXB, you'll enjoy 
immensely.

Move 

Author: Kai Iske 

Workbench has always had a few missing bits here and 
there, but the one command Commodore have always 
left out for no appaient reason is a move command . 

The author of this program got a little steamed up 
about it, and faced with the choice of either punching 
out every Commodore employee he could lay his hands 
on, or writing a move command of his own, he wiset] 
chose the latter course, Move is a simple CLI command 
which does a simple job, but it does something that 
Amiga DOS normally makes ■ complete pain in the dan- 
gly bits. Use it with the simple parameter information 
found on the disk and you should have few problems. 

For example, moving the move command from disk 
to your C: directory is a simple matter of typing: 

•Cvi "ME t: (; 
and there's no faffing around with copy, delete, or 
rename. Neat, eh?

vour backup, 



Copying individual files 



you might at some point want to copy a single program 
from a CoverDisk to your compilation, Workbench disk or 
even your hard drive. 

To do this you'll need the COPY command. As most 
CoverDisk programs are stashed away in their own direc- 
:orin, the quickest way to copy a program Is to copy the 
whole directory at once. Use the command: 

cpr (directon*} TO tiuudfsU all 

where {directory) is the full pathname of the directory 
you wish to copy, and (newdisk) is the name of the disk 
and directory into which it wifl be copied. 

For example, if yau wanted to copy a utility called 
FRED from CoverDisk 27's Utilities drawer to a directory 
called FRED on your Workbench disk, you'd type: 



UlUliliklUiilillH 

^^„ IIC — t -5-il -5-M - 



p! *hmmh,i ii mi, 1« \rtt, i;k i.g ,_; 



» 



IU ILI 



tttl CDVEH4:SKZ7:UTILETieS/ FR£D Kl MlHBEllttt.VFI 



Alternatively, you can click once on the FRED directory 
icon and drag it across to the new disk's window. This 
r?as the advantage of creating a new directory for you 
and copying the icon as well, 

Once you have moved a particular program to where 
you require it you could experience some problems fun- 
ning the program. This is sometimes caused by the pro- 
gram not bring able to find files which it needs to run. 

A good example is the text files on the CoverDisk. 
These have been crunched using PowerPacker, so when 
you try to copy them to another disk and then try to read 
them you can't unless you have also copied the 
Powefpacker library into your LIBS drawer. 



So if you have copied a program from the CoverDisk 
to your Work disk or hard drive make sure you also copy 
any other files the program requires, ie fonts, libraries, 
device drivers and Ccommands. 



De-archiving 

Occasionally we have so many programs to fit onto the 
CoverDisk that we have to archive them. Archiving is 
where we take the entire contents of a disk and com- 
press them into one file which is much smaller, giving 
us space to fit more programs onto the disk. 

Dearchiviog programs which are on the CoverDisk 
is a very simple task. If a program has been archived 
then you will need a Wank disk to dearchive it onto. 

Say we have archived a program called FRED. You 
simply double dick on FRED's icon, and will be asked if 
you have a blank disk ready to cfearchive to. Type "y" 
or V accordingly. 

Your computer will then copy the archived file into 
its memory and ask you to insert your blank disk. It will 
proceed to format the disk, and will then de-crunch 
the archived file onto your blank disk. 

Once this has been done you can simply reboot 
your machine with the disk which contains the 
dearchived program on it and then use the program as 
instructed in the CoverDisk pages. 

Note that if you have a Workbench 2 or upward 
machine you must boot with the CoverDisk write- 
enabled to perform the dearchiving process. 





Workbench 3 

If you have a Workbench I machine, don't 
worry - most if not all of the programs on the 
CoverDisk will work on your machines. 

If the program is specifically designed to 
work with Workbench 3 then you may have to 
copy the program to your hard drive or 
Workbench disk using the process described 
earlier on this page,

WORD PROCESSORS 



Final Copy 2 

£69-95 

Softwood inc. Cordon Harwood, 

New Street, A If reton DE5 7BP 

Tel OT73 83678 



Like all true American products, Ihe 256 true colour Final Copy 2 attempts to 
make itself bigger and better than the rest. Hailed by its makers as the ulnmale 
word processor and desktop publishing combo, Softwood Inc have certainly 
pulled a flashy, las! and solid il flawed piece ol software oul °" the melaphoncal 

When booted in. Ihe user is faced with a plethora ol (he usual options pies (be 
DTP drawing tools for generating, ovals, boxes, graphs and Irames. Tbe latter 
features are no! offered by any other package he* oiher than its predecessor 
and stablemaie Pen Pal. 

Also included is the PC-aspinng viewing option which is vital for any DTP 
software. Click on it and the user is presented with a list of zoom in and oui 
ratios which enaWe rial precision in texl and picture placement 

Rnal Copy 2 will read any IFF fife which can then be manipulated, resized 
and cropped at a last rala to suit Ihe user's tastes (a rotation lactty would have 

been useful). Twt . T n i.w .t 

Add Ihe bonjs ol 
an excellent 256 true 
colour palette lhat can 

be displayed on- 
screen at any one 
time and Softwood 
Inc's latest AGA 
supported offering 
sounds unbeatable. 

Alas, ihe old 
adage "all thai glitters 
is not gold" is appro- 
priate - FC2 is 
primarily a word pro- 
cessing package and while oHering a healthy balch of WP feaiures, there are a 
few omissions which leaves one wondering why they weren't included. 

For starters (here is no show "invisibles" option which usually displays car- 
nage returns tabs and the like. Because of this, when text is converted into Ascn 
formal, It'll be like walking up an 30 degree slope to clean up any formatting 

P "There is also no support for Adobe Type One and Agfa Compugraphit lonts. 
Back this up wilti no list or index gen- 



erator as featured in Wordworth v2 
and you've got a typical example of 
"great potential but must try harder". 
Having said all ibis, when push 
comes to shove, Final Copy 2 is a 
good looking package with some 
powerful features to boot and pro- 
vides the user with enough laci lilies 
to create an attractive business or 
home document

£26.99 

Activist! oti, Sheraton House, Lower Rood, 
Chor ley wood WD3 5LH 



The second contender lor the crown Is KindWords 3 from the Disc Company. It 
you're lamiliar with Amiga word processors, you may well remember Ihe hammering 
its parent KindWords 2 received due to ils slew, bug-ridden performance. 

When v3 popped up last year, it came as rather a surprise lhat the entire pro- 
gram had been rewritten by Digila International, Ihe producers ot Wordworth. As 
soon as it's booted in. you can see the sinking similarity. 

The Wysiwyg (what you see is what you get) Ironl end Is practically identical but 
has (ewer oplions Iban Wordworln. Icons run down Ihe left-hand side of the screen 
and include the standard array of tab markers, text alignment, line spacing, undo, 
typeface, colour controls and palette 

The pull down menus at the top yield a spelling checker, thesaurus and edrtmg 
facilities IFF pictures with a maximum of 16 colours can be placed anywhere on the 
page and manipulated into the desired position bul this is no( a DTP program so 
don't expect too much control when compared with Ihe likes of Final Copy 2 

One ot Ihe program's strongest points is the ease of use, While the manual may 
seem thin compared to ihe encyclopaedic bulk ol ihe other titles renewed here, 
KlndWards3 features a help ophon which details each function. 

On (he negative side, for users ol other packages such as Pretext and ProWnte, 
documents cannot be loaded or saved from other sources, only m KW3 or 
Wordworth formal - Ascii or IFF texl. This coupled with the lack of PostSenpt sup- 
port custom printer drivers, differing viewing ratios - it's a real pain doing any kind 
of layout work when you can't see the lull result of your efforts up on screen, and 
others makes KindWords 3 a non-contender for serious office use. However. 
one ol the best in ils price range. 

Cynically, ihe package sometimes 
feels like nothing more than a cheap 
and cheerful version of Wordworth 
brought oul to fill a gap in the low bud- 
get market bul considering lhat it is 
half the pnee of its big brother, il does 
fulfil ils goal admirably. If otters basic 
features wilh an easy to use. tnendly 
interlace and is suitable lor beginners 
and home users alike.

^eriricslfy designed to include. AGA as

This package has always been i pow-

the fcahwei you'd expect, it has

i or lengthy reports are the order of the day, ProWrite is 
aUe to lay a bookmark in the text which by the dick of * button

The main problem with this is only being able to use one per 
document - a system of numbered or named bookmarks as used 
iv Word worth would improve and fulfil the potential that this 
option has. 

The packages biggest let-down is picture placement. While

rt result is a rather messy dithered interpretation of iht* image;

Whether you're a teacher typing a report or Stephen King 
keying in his latesl epic, word processors have become part of 
many peoples lives. 

In the beginning Amiga word processing packages were ill in 
comparison to ihe monsters found on the PC but over the last 
year, we've seen a steady influx ol software that is beginning to 
really show oil the Amiga's word crunching capabilities, 

Here is a pick of gome of the besl... 1st Ihe fight commence. 



but if you actually want to see it in all its technicolour glory tip 
on the screen then forget it. 

A neither Limitation is speed both in manipulating and espe- 
cially loading times. When compared to Final Copy 2, ProWrite 
positively drags its heels when booting an image in. 

Ihese misgivings aside, it offers enough flexibility and versa- 
tility to be ideal for home use. With full PostScript support, the 
U»er being able to set different headers and footers for odd arid 
even pages, the ability to customise the function keys through 
macro and a spelling checker thai checks as you type, ProWrite 
v$3 is well worth taking a look at - especially with the recent 
price slash.

from the same stable as Pen Pal and Final 
Copy 2, Final Writer is apparently, accord- 
ing to the manufacturers Softwood, Ihe 
most comprehensive word processor with 
DTP capabilities to match ever produced 
on the Amiga. 

You'll have to wait a while for our 
definitive review but judging from 
appearances and trie bundle of informa- 
tion that flew our way, it certainly seems 
to be a package worth waiting for. 

Like Final Copy 2, Final Writer has 
DTP facilities but also rotate text and 
graphics option to make documents look 
the real business. Couple this with a host 
of powerful features from cutting, copying 
and pasting graphics to structured EPS 
clip art images supplied with the package 
and Final Writer looks like it could well be 
a winner. Stay tuned for more details...

always tried to incorporate easy on the eye display* and this is no different 

It "features verv bask DTP facilities such as the ability to place picture* and manip-

A page preview can be selected to see either facing pages, several tx thumb rati

like Final Copy 2 never did. 

On the word processing side, it has Wysiwyg display and a large selection of fea- 
tures- The user is able to create Indexes and lists, Tins is achieved through writing the 
text and highlighting the words that you wish to be stored in the list which are then 
transferred to be used later- 

Among the literary options is the glossary 5 . When chosen, the user is presented with 
a list of terms commonly used in letters, documents and the like. By clicking on 
Ode of them, it is placed on the page wherever the cursor is. This list can also be per- 
sonalised and expanded to include your own fate catch phrase. Like FroWrite 3.3, 
Woidworth also features a bookmark facility but improves on it by giving the user the 
option to insert as many as they need in a single document by simply naming 
each one. 

If full PostScript support 17 superb Agfa fonts and drivers for L40 individual ^print- 
ers in a professional operating package sound appealing then WordwWTO <# is well 
worth taking a look at. Highly recommended

package is split up Into two dilferenl sections - a basic word processor and a 
database creator lor producing detailed information storage sheets. 

On loading, the user is presented with a well laid-out work top which includes DTP 
drawing tools, With Ihese, as with FC2. you are able to construct boxes, horizontal 
and vertical lines bul not ovals. 

Other facilities include edit, file controls, mail merge, a large font selechon and so 
on. As far as the typelace option operates, it works well bul it is not possible to cus- 
tomise your own sizes. This is made worse by the maximum rjoinl size only being 48 
when, lot a good solid title, 65 is often needed. 

Another excellent leature that hasn't been implemented as well as it could I 
been is thB full-page view. When sefecled, itie user ts shown a view of ihe who* 
page plus a window for close up work 

By using line magnifying glass pomter, it's possible to select the pari ol a docu- 
menl you wish to see in more detail, 

This all works fine apart ham the fact that the full -page view is not what you'll see 
on paper and is actually sketched horizontally oul of proportion. 

This makes it very rjfflcufl to gel a precise idea on exactly how (he documert 
looks withoul going Ih rough the hassle of printing il out and wasting papef . 

Pen Pal does have some useful options such as locking up graphics so that rr 
user doesn't accidentally move a finely positioned picture or set ol images. 

Form making is another well implemented facility, By creating the basic structure 
lor Ihe invoice or whatever il may be, all the user has to do is simply fill in the deta*s. 

The database creator is simple to use and as with Ihe word processing section. 
Ascli-compatible. Through Itie genera- 



tor, a database to suit your specific 
needs is created but for serious busi- 
ness use, this is not adequate 

With no special printer drivers or 
PostScript option, Pan Pal cannol 
really be seen as anything mora than a 
good introduction title and a utility that 
can only really be used to any useful 
effect in the home

FEATURE 



There's been a lot of furore in the 
Amiga press of late, talking 
about how the PAL version of 

the NvwTek Video Toaster is hew, arid we 
don't have to wait any longer for broad- 
cast video on the desktop. 

While the Prime Image standards con- 
verter card which makes this so-called 
PAL Toaster possible is certainly A 
Solution, it mu>I The Solution. 

Anyone with a lull grasp of the facts 
will Ignore the desperate ravings of 
Amiga users who trust a Spec sheet B Off 
than the evidence of their own eyes. 

OK. yes, the Video Toaster is the best 
peripheral ever produced for the Amiga. 
bar none. Why? Well, primarily because it 
got the Amiga sold to more non- Amiga 
users than anything else besides Scala, 
and it's the first Amiga application to 
become something uf an Industry stan- 
dard for 0IY. 

But the main reason the Toaster is a 
cool piece of equipment is that it allows I 
uaeTi in an NTSC environment at least, to 
cut and paste video about like a word pro- 
cessor or DTP program, Oh yes, of couiw 
provided you have a little bit of e*.tra out- 
board gear. 

1'he Video Toaster isn't just as good U 
one of its parte, it's a whole environment. 
Barking on about Lightwave all the time 
or talking only about Digital Video Effects 
is missing the point 

Whai pundits always fail to point out is 
that the unique success of the Video 
Toaster is based on its many entry levels. 
Some people buy it dimply for -till 3D pic- 
tures, some fur video captioning, some for 
24-bit frame grabbing and painting. 

None of these entry level uses for the 
Toaster require much outboard equip- 
ment, just a Toaster and a VCR or two 




Ja ntar ytt m AfrtC, fAe Wra Taoslrt irnrali" o Mi. drrtnn 



When you climb up a rung you need bet- 
ter VCRs, and time base correctors |o 
enable vou to do live video mixing and 
other more tricky things. 

Obviously some equipment can be 
hired initially, but the fact remains that 
you need \l Bui the cost of this Otitia) i- 
offset by the initial cheapness of the 
Toaster itself, even cheaper of course if 
you already have the Amiga 2000 of 40(10 
to plug it into, which is more probable 
than not. 

In a PAL environment however, this 
situation changes beyond recognition. 
Instead of having to lay out for a single 
board, you have to add £1,200 each for a 
couple of standards converters, 
which makes casual purchase and use 
impossible. 

This effectively doubles or triples the 
price to the consumer and ensures that 




PAl md NTiC are u> dttfirert! that M coniwft Asfimir ttflii fori* many tttmn m

So you want a Video Toaster? 

We'll, here are the ways you can use a Video Toaster now and for real: 

You can run one if you have a job with an American company who are prepared 
lo ship you a bunch of NTSC video machines, monitors and cameras. You use 

thB Toasler in a !ully-NTSC environment and then edit and save your creations lo lape. 

Then you use an S'TD CON to transfer your work to PAL lape, or simply send your lapes 

in NTSC to the US for consumption. 



HYou can use one ii you have a 
lot ol money to waste and don't 
really cane about quality {nobody cares 
more aboul quality than someone with 
lots ol money, I might add). 



Olf you want lo use a Video 
Toaster like you can in the USA, 
then the only thing you can do is move to 
the USA. Trvat is the only way you'll gel 
max quality out lor minimum money in. 



even if all they wanted to do was render 
things up to the quality of Babylon 5 W 
SyQuest DSV, they would be paying 
through the snout and then some for the 
privilege, 

This means thai the only people with 
enough dosh to lash out for a Toaster sys- 
tem would be the professional sector and 
then quality would be the main issue. 

Whereas the quality of the Toaster in an 
NTSC environment is easily good enough 
for broadcast, you wouldn't stand a 
chance of doing anything for broadcast In 
PAL. 

For a start, any TV or production com- 
pany wouldn't accept a programme on 
anything less than Betacam SP, a profes- 
-iiin.il video format which is very expen- 
sive and requires outboard TBCs and the 
like to ensure (he quality is good 

Unless you have the outboard gear 
there's no point in going to SP. Your aver- 
age UK independent production company 
would Qtvty yust about afford this kind of 
technology, let alone your average tethno- 
'.vi rule with a camcorder. 

FRAMED 

The only place you'll really get away 
with a home-made tape on UK TV i>, 
Ycu'vt Been Framed, and using a Toaster 
with an SID CON that's what you'll get - 
the quality of a bonne-made tape, not any- 
thing Desktop Broadcast Video. 

The reason that the semi- pro video 
market in the L"K isn't as well developed 
is that we don't have the wealth of cable 
stadons they have in the US. 

These are outfits who operate on HiS, 
and whets anything is permissible as long 
as the quality of the tapes you gel i s 
vaguely watchable, Not being rude to US 
TV, but NTSC is a lower quality video 
standard, having less lines and therefore 
less physical resolution than UK PAL. So 
content is king where quality lacks, as 
they say, 

Poi the price, the Toaster is the best 
quality switcher you can buy, and gives 
you access to broadcast effects without all 
the expense of a full studio. That's the bey, 
"without the expanse", 

Translate that into English, and you get 
the idea that although the TOHter Is good 



enough for the NTSC (Never Twice t 
Same Colour) standard, it's less th 
acceptable (in professional terms} on( 
PAL system anyway, regardless of wt 
the Prime Image STD CON board can | 
to it, 

There's been a lot of hoi air general 
about the Prime Image STD CON card. 1 
isn't a transcoder, for a start, Iffl a Bt 
dards converter. Although Prime lrrw 
claim that it's a rock solid solution, 
that it's brand new, eoon-to-be-patert 
technology, it isn't going to be that good 

Why? Well, to be brutal if it was 
good all the TV and broadcast ma* 
would be alive with talk of it. What sis 
daids converters do is difficult and pre 
cessor intensive, and the technology to t 
it well is very expensive, 

Even with very good standards o 
verters you are going to lose quality - 1 
is an inescapable fact. The image- I 
look just about the same, but ifl UK) 
they judder, they jerk, they flop about ] 
dead Bsh. 

When you pan, th* smooth pan 
turned into a juddering mess. In short, 1 
standards converter route is an ahs- 
crock of poo. Why? 

Imagine you have a frame of video- 







a frame of PAL video so it is 625 I: 
height, You want to pot it info fed 
dei fee? Fine sir, we'll just trim 100 
off the thing and it'll cram in there a I 
Obviously the lines are oot all off t 
torn, no you have to whip them out j 
reptitiously from every other line or to. 
This h almost like de- interlacing 
Amiga hi-res image. Try it yourself, 
nicely detailed image in hi-res lace, ] 
ably with text in it. Now use Art Depl 
2 to convert it into a plain hi-res pi 
Urgh. 

OK, not only do you have Less one 
vim »bo have more frames in 
PAL you have a video signal which : 
at 50Hz, that's two fields per frame j 
25 frames per second and 625 line*. 

In NTSC you have a signal which i 
at feOHz, which .it the same two feUi | 
frame you end up with 30 frames per ! 
ond, and 525 lines. 

So going from PAL to NTSC yon 
100 lines and gain five frames. Going i 
NTSC to PAL gains you 100 line* I 
loses five frames. Where do these | 
and losses come bom a nd go to? 

In ordel to create a frame with t£ 
from a frame with 525 you have to i 
polite - that is, examine each line j 
pixel and make a best guess about < 
looks like spread over say five inn 

Alter that you have to lose these I 
frames somewhere, lo the ok 
naed to do just that, lose a frame <

more subtle now, with the tra

It is the coolest piece of hardware around, 
and it has a certain charisma which few 
other peripherals have, but it is a US only

M E MORY 




ew A1200 owners, or 
these who will be once the 
soot settles from Santa's 
exit up the chimney, could be forgiven 
for thinking lhat 2Mb ol RAM is 
enough lor just about anything. 

After all. Itiis is four Itmes what the 
original ASOO sported, and still double 
the amount found in the A50O Plus or 
A6O0. Why add more? 

To a certain extent, this is fair com- 
ment, as 2Mb will suffice for any 
game you care to mention and a 
goodly number of more serious 
programs, 

However, once a hard drive is 
added and Ihe user boots Irom it then 
loads, say, a word processor using 
graphics in a document, ihe machine 
will slow down and eventually run out 
of memory 

Speed is affected because Ihe 2Mb 
RAM in a basic A12D0 Is all chip 
RAM, the area to which Ihe cuSlom 
chips have direct access, and (or pro- 
gram code this is the wtirsl place 10 
be. 

TRAP DOOR 

To avo<d clashes with IhB memory 
accesses of Alice and Lisa, programs 
need fast RAM. and that's where Ihe 
machine's trap door expansion slot 
comes in. 

Like the older Amigas, the A12G0 
has a trap door on its underside 
which can be opened and used lor 
peripherals without risk to Ihe war- 



ranty. A 150-pin slot awaits a variety 
of devices, which now include 
HAM/FPU boards, 6SG30 accelera- 
tors, and SCSI interfaces. 

By adding even as little as 1Mb 
fast RAM, the A120Q can bs allowed 
to breath easier and programs can be 
nun oulside the busy chip RAM area, 
freeing Ihe Amiga lo work 
smoother and (aster, 
and this is ihe 
reason the 
A1200 RAM 
expansion market 
has taken off 

Alter a while, 
fitting or using a 
hard drive, buying 
more powerful solt 
ware, or moving into 
memory hungry areas 
of interest, the A 1200 
owner will be forced 
to expand, so let's take 
a look at those options. 







As the Christmas shopping 

spree looms nearer, Stevie 

Kennedy examines the RAM 

expansions on offer 



i 






Power Computing PCI208 



Amiga Computing 




A big brother lew the PC12D4. 

Power's latest RAM board 

offers similar features lo its 

sibling but with added Rn£- 

bility. 

As RAM his to this 
board in Ihe form ol SIMM 
modules, the user can 
choose to start with 1 Mb 
RAM, then expand al a 
later dale to 2Mb, 
4Mb, or fiMb. 
though this 
will some- 
times mean chucking 
away the original SIMM. 

The FPU option is again avail- 
able, and if the board is initially 
bought with no FPU, ihe presence 
of two types of socket means thai 
either lype ol FPU (pins on the oulside or 



ptnl below, basically) can be lilted. It is 

therefore easjer to shop around looking for 
the cheapest 68882 from a chip supplier. 

More flexible than the standard PC 1204. 
this card is a better bet for Ihose with ambi- 
tions w Ihe need to start with less and build 
up once ihe wallet recovers.

Blizzard 1200/4 

The Blizzard board is Ihe smallest around al the moment and benefils Irom a very corn- 
pad design in which every chip save the FPU is surface mounted. 

Eight 70ns OHAMs provide the memory boost, and a further 4Mb can be added by 
buying and clipping on the ADD4 module, which brings the board up to size with ihe 
others. A battery backed-up clock rounds of the neat little card with the neatesl riffle 
rechargeable battery we've seen. 

Maths co-processors either 6SB81 or &BAB2. can be added and the board is rated at 
up ta 40MHz, so with a possible 8Mb RAM 
anrj the faster co-processors, Ihe re's 
a certain amount of upgradabllily. 
even though no SIMM stats are used. 

The method of bunging an extra 
board on the ervd ot the A1 200/4 main 
PCB seems a Me crude, and whether 
or not it will be as reliable as a SIMM 
socket is debatable. Keeping down the initial 
cost as it does, itie method makes the Blizzard a 
good buy, though, and the extra 4Mb RAM is cheap 
at £159.

The MBX1200 is a RAM and FPU 
combination much like the PCl2Qfl in

bility, enabling users to buy the

configurations. 

A co-processor socket provides 
expansion capabilities using the

options 

Owners ol the premier Amiga have 
probably the lea si choice of all, but this 
is amply compensated tor by Ihe sim- 
plest and most economic rouie lo extra 
RAM, The A400Q motherboard can 
accepl extra SIMMs up to a maximum 
ol 16Mb in lis lour last RAM slots, and 
Ihis should be enough for most users. 

Over and above this total, those with 
heavy memory requirements - such as 
those driving a flatbed scanner, or 
indulging in a. great deal of graphics 
work - have only one option at present. 

American company DKB will shortly 
release their Zorro III RAM board, 
capable ol holding 128Mb of RAM 
using 16Mb SIMMs, and (hough the 
fully-populated board will no doubt be 
extremely expensive, it is 1he only 
choice for those in the high end ol rhp 
market who need a great deal ol mem- 
ory, 

For pricing details and availability ol 
the DKB board, phone Silica Systems

Chip vs fast 

The Amiga has two types of memory: 
chip RAM and fast RAM, The former 
was designed as an area of memory 
to which the custom chips, Denise 
and Agnus to start with, Lisa and 
Alice on the new machines, can read 
and write data directly, 

For this reason, when chip RAM 
starts to run low, programs such as 
OPaint start to complain thai they 



particular screen, and so on. The 
advent of the 2Mb chip RAM Amigas. 
with twice as much memory for 
graphics and sound, was a blessing 
to all. 

Unfortunately, chip RAM is not the 
ideal place for program code to 
reside, and there are two main rea- 
sons. First of all, ihe custom chips 
will run out of chip RAM a lot faster if 
it is cluttered up with programs, and 
secondly the programs themselves 
will not run as quickly. 

Competition with the custom chips 
for access lo RAM Is bad enough for 
speed, but when the programs them- 
selves rob Alice and Lisa of RAM, 
they slow themselves down as well, 
and we're caught in a calch-22. The 
only way out of this vicious circle is 
to add fast RAM. 

This extra memory cannot be 
directly accessed by the custom 
chips and is organised such that pro- 
grams run at thoir best speed. In 
effect, a bit of fast RAM is the sim- 
plest and cheapest accelerator

M EMORY 



Price hike 

Earlier this summer, a duo at natu- 
ral disasters conspired to nobble 
the RAM chip industry and boost 
prices well above the lows to which 
lhay had sunk early in 1 993- 

Irv Japan, a fire at one chip lac- 
lory and an earthquake near 
another temporarily forced chip 
I prices up arid provided the excuse 
the industry needed to keep Ihem 
there. 

PC toox-shifters. struggling on tiny 
margins, and manufacturers of all 
kinds can make more prolit on more 
expensive RAM chips, so it is 
unlikely thai prices will fall very 
quickly even after the immediate 
shortage, Competition will inevitably 
drive them down, but it might be 
summer 1994 before we see real 
price cuts. 

For the moment, Irieri, A1200 
owners with need for fast RAM but 
no burning requirement as yet for 
huge wads of the stuff would be 
advised to buy one ol the slightly 
more expensive boards which offer 
I 1Mb and 2Mb options and wail 
until RAM prices come down 
again before Investing in a 4Mb 
SIMM. 

None of the simple RAM and FPU 
cards have Iwo SIMM slots, but 
some of the 68030 accelerators do, 
and this makes lile much easier. 

For example, owners of the GVP 
A 1230 might opl to buy the card 
with a 2Mb SIMM, then add another 
2Mb SIMM for a total Of 4Mb without 
having to throw away or sell the 
original SIMM. 

Potential upgraders with single 
slot cards should bear in mind that 
the original SIMM will have to be 
sold, traded in, or discarded when 
bumping up the memory, so a word 
wilh the suppliers on whether or 
not a trade in option exists is 
essential. 



Turbo tech A41200 




Another cheap 4Mb card, Ihe Turtwtech is more or less identical to Powers PC1204 wilh 
the important omission ol an FPU option. 

Consisting of eight 70ns ZIP chips and a battery backed-up clock, this is a no-nonsense 
card aimed at Ihe home user with simple requirement lor memory expansion and nothing 

else. 

The Turbstech A412DD is built well, with the jsual predominance of surface mounted 
component, and behaves well in use, so should render adequate service tor the com- 
puter's lilelime. 

As far as speeding up the Amiga is concerned. Turtoolech's lack of a co-processor 
leaves it firmly anchored to ihe bottom ol the market, but ihe addition ol fast RAM will 
always g«e a machine regardless of extra chippery 

Even as

little as 



1Mb fast RAM 
can let the 
A1200 breath 
a lot easier

Breath easy 

Any Amiga working on a diet exc . 
sivflly of chip RAM will suffer from i 
memory bottleneck which *■ 
inevitably lead to a slow down in ope- 
alion. 

Without the fast RAM in which 
run, programs will compete with \ 
ics and sound data for space, and 
system will start to drag Its feet 

Wilh fast RAM added, everythir 
becomes a great deal easier, and 
program code has a apace of its own i 
which to roam while the custom ch 
get on with the job of messing ab 
with the data in chip RAM. 

This is a rather simplistic pictu 
but the point is that chip RAM i 
designed to be used directly by im 
custom chips, and is where data sural 
as sound and graphics are stored. 
where screens are buffered or drawn ■ 
ihe background and so on. 

To shove program code in wifti thi 
lot Is asking for trouble, and that's w*» 
most manufacturers claim that th*r 
RAM expansions will give you anytntJ 
Irom 1u0 per cent to 300 per ce«r 
speed boosts. In effect, the most ofr*- 
ous change users will see is tr*r 
Workbench and other products • 
packages run more smoothly. Garnet 
shouldn't be affected as most at 
designed with unexpanded Amiga* ■ 
mind. 

Even 1Mb of fast RAM would make • 
big difference to the smooth running* 
an A120O, and 2Mb should be eno-cr 
to allow paint packages and oihBB 
memory-hungry programs to rur 
hard drive without constantly rur 
qui ol chip RAM. 

The norm seems to be 4Mb thta 
days, but this can be expensive. *-* 
users are advised to lake a close m 
at the expansion boards which hax i 
variety of configurations,

This is a later version ol Ihe MBX120Q. offering 
exactly the same specifications wilh the addition of a

TUTORIAL 




Before you buy... 

Before you rush out, cash in hand, there are a lew basic points you should consider: 



Is there are major difference between 
the various models on the market? 

Although some appear faster than others 
during benchmark tests the actual speed 
difference is minute during normal 
operations. 

What size drive should f get? 
Probably the best way It} decide cm a size 
is to add up al the software you'd like to 
install and then pick the next size up from 
that - under no circumstances consider 
anything te$s than a 40Mb dnvc. 



Do i need anything eise ? 

Get a copy ol HD- Backup or Quarterback 
Tools - which was given away wilh our 
December issue. In addition invest in 
some form of directory manager such as 
SID II or Directory Opus - good lile man- 
agement is an essential part of owning 
any hard disk, 

Which type of hard disk do I need? 

In the case of an Amiga 1 200 you'll require 
a 2.5in IDE dnve which has been approved 
lor use with ihe machine. 



II tip until n«TW vour COfflOUtlng 
r.-invr Ii.ih been, spent on a floppy- 
hased system, the appeal of a hard 
disk m ,iv nut hi' that great Alter .ill what's 
the big deal, so they're faster and a bit 
more convenient than a floppy - hardly 
worth spending hundred* of pounds on, 
right? 

Wrong, After |us1 1 feu minutes expo- 
sure to a hard disk you'll grimace at the 
prospect of rebooting with a floppy, The 
difference is akin to that between walking 
.nid driving a car - with the relatively 
large investment being outweighed by 
easily improved, performance right across 
the board. 

Before you start unscrewing your 
A1200 please bear in mind that if your 
machine is still within its warranty it will 
be invalidated by adding a hard disk 
under your own steam. 

As a consequence, the following proce- 
dure Is best attempted on machines which 
i re ewer a jwtr old- This isn i in say the 
process is difficult, in fact the A1200 is 
probably the easiest of all the Amiga 
range to upgrade, 

I lowever, if a Commodore engineer 
spots that a new machine has been opened 
for whatever reason you'll be out in the 
cold - end of story, Even if the problem 
has nothing to do the installation of the 
hard disk the end result will remain the 
Ntme, and you'll be forced to pay for any 
subsequent repairs. 

Mow hetWe wielding a screwdriver 
please read the following instructions very 
carefully and do not proceed unless 
you're completely sure of what you're 



fit an A12O0 



doing. At this point it must be stressed 
Amiga Computing will not be held reason- 
able for iiny damage to you or your 
machine, 

first disconnect everything from the 
machine,, paying special attention to the 
power supply. Under circumstances 
attempt any maintenance while the 
machine is pluj^ged in. 

Mow flip the machine over and undo 
the screws which lurid the casing 
together, then slice open the warranty 
seals - there's no going back now.... Hnld 
the machine together and carefully turn 
the machine right-side up, 

Vim shimlil hum k' ,'hlr1n remme tile 
bd revealing the hard drive cradle within 
You. may notice that die top of the casing 
prfh-SeH .ii^uilit the rasing - (his i> r.unr.il 
and is done to keep the drive from sliding 
around inside the machine. 

At this point go the kitchen, make a 
coffee and return to the table with; the 
coffee, a small crosshead screwdriver and 
one IDE drive - complete with connecting 
cable. 

1 he i alter i- to calm your nerves - feel 
free to increase Ihe dose as neCessarv- 
Now please be careful and take your 

tiiiu- to follow these inslrikli * to the 

letter: 



If you're contemplating a hard disk for 

your A 1 200, read on as AC points out 

the do's and don'ts of installation

% Disconnect the disk drive LtiDs. 

# Slide the keyboard back and free from 
its catches, placing it behind Ihe bod) of 
the machine, If necessary you can discon- 
nect the keyboard ribbon cable from 
the motherboard - but be sure to 
remember its original position and 
alignment 

# Now fit the drive into the cradle - it can 

be temporarily removed from the machine 
:t required. 

# Connect the cable to the drive and 
replace the cradle and drive combination 
into the machine - connecting the afore- 
mentioned cable to the interface on the 
motherboard of the machine. 



• Now simply replace the keyboard and 
reassemble the machine 

Believe it or not the physical installa- 
lion is now complete, it's literally that 
simple. Nnw il's lime to move on to the 
preparation and partitioning of the drive, 

If you're not familiar with hard disks 
pjrti tinning Irw privet ean he .1 rather 

confusing, Hoivever in reality it's a fairly 
straight forward procedure which simple 
siloes tin' disk into several user defined 
portions, 

You may well ask why bother? Well 
there are some advantages involved in 
partitioning, Firstly you can impress your 
friends by pretending to have more hard 
*l isks than you've actually gut! 

But perhaps more import is the safety

In short, don't be tempted to over par-

I' 1 HO: partition at least 1 (1Mb. 

Assuming the machine is firmly 
strewed together - complete with 
mouse, monitors jnd ail other essential 
■herals - it's time to reboot the 
machine using either the HDToolbox 
" -k or the Amiga Computing December 
CoverDisk featuring RDPrep, Given, the

friends by 
pretending to have 
more hard disks — 
than you f ve got! y 

choice opt for the RDPrep software give 

away as this is by far I he simplest 
method of propping a drive. 

First boot the CoverDisk and run the 



RDPrep softw .ire - take a look at the disk 

pages and readme file if you're a bit ner- 
vous. The software will now automati- 
cally Search for a standard Commodore 
SCSI device, at which point your new 
drive should be located and its name pop 

lip. 

Although both HDToolbox and 
RDPrep apparently think your new drive 

is a SCSI, in fact it's just pretending to be 
so, in make life simpler for itself and 
mildly confusing fur you. 

Anyway, leaving the idiosyncrasies of 
the installers aside the drive should be 
Spotted and will appear in the RDPrep 
screen. Now simply select it and click 



TUTORIA L 



on the button marked Screen 2 

Partitioning. 

At this point define the size of your 
partitions and return to screen I, Now 
write the Rigid Disk Block and save a 

copy of the mount file prior to quitting 
the package. Your new hard disk will 
appear on the Workbench screen as 
something like DH0;NDQ5, DHUMLXTS 
.mil hi on... 

This simply means that the drive is 
on-line but as yet not formatted. To for- 
mat the drive click once on its disk icon 
and select format from the pull-d.j-. n 
menu. 

The usual requester will now appear 
for naming the drive and Selecting 
whether or not to have a Trashcan. 
Before clicking on format ensure that 
Fast hilt- System is activated, Simply 
repeat this process fat each partition on 
your system 

-At this point you'll be happy to know 
the process is almost complett- - all that 
remains is tn copy Workbench onto the 
drive- 
To do this, rtjboot the machine using a 
copy of your original Workbench disk 
and copying all: the necessary files to 
your system partition. To do this open a 
Shell window and type in the following 
line: 

»Pr dfOir? Cdrivt nttt-.l atl cLons 

Now simply repeat the process for 
each disk supplied with the machine and 
all will be installed. After you've done 
tiul tor each disk make sure that dfO: is 
empty and warm re-boot the machine. If 
all is well your machine will now h...i- 
up from the hard disk and you're in busi- 
ness. Have fun...

iMetiye or compulsive attitude so computers is mote common than many would like 
to believe, and, as your moving account shows, the problem isn'l restricted to 
mfoot-kids. 

•ssts in schools have shown an almost 50 per cent addiction rate among those

-.derslated. 

lure all our readers, particularly those with partners, will feel for you, as (if they're 

tang honest) most will have suffered domestic strife of some sort caused by the urge 

nend hours m front of a keyboard every evening. How many of fhese cases have

Not so big bang 

- vi^w with siimi 1 ill tin 1 pciinhi : 

■ the article "CD Big Bang" in the 
V* ember issue. 

Firstly you say you look, forward to 
ise time when games will no longer have 
'cheap looking tiny sprites", but massive 
: cilihftl act inn -r.:.n n-.- I ih: nX. -iv 
±js as in any way a step forward. 

The fantastic artwork we see on some 
tame*- now amid be lost as artists are 
poshed out by anybody with a video 
•border and a digitiser. This type of ani- 
■Ution is currently used heavily in 
irdiousand dull beat-'em-u ps 

If digitising from video to game 
• nmes. Hit- iinrm. iWs il-i- iiH'ail iVe 

will never see a game which isn't first a 

r_m' Most of the classic games have noth- 
ing to dn with film tie-ins {Populous. 
[Rations, Chaos Engine, and so on). 
Secondly, you say the advent of CD 
■. .sns that we am look forward to the 
; -it- hi-ing bundled with tilni previews, 
tie-ins, 08*8 competitions, special offers, 
.; -.1' on, Personally, 1 would be more 
than peeved to buy a CD to find out that 



5WMb is used for advertising and only 
I Mb tor the game. 

You may see this as far-fetched, but in 
these days of corporate take-overs is it 
ridiculous to one day stH. 1 a Psygnosis CD 
game accompanied by loads of Sony 
advertising? 

Adverts eoold be tacked on to the front 
of a game so you were forced to Watch 
them. Where will It all end? 

"Congratulations, you haw fust finished 
level one. And now, a word from our 
sponsors,,. " 

Jeez! This is the stuff nightmares are 
made ot. With some games, aimed at 
younger audiences, the marketing band- 
wagon will see an opportunity to target 
Quae young minds with constant adver- 
tisements tor the latest £1011 trainers in- 
whatever. 

t do look forward tn the advent of CD 
video, but wh H it it the use of 74 minutes? 
Two episodes of Blackadder? Half a fea- 
ture film? Of course a film could be pn> 
vidfd on twifCDs. hni there would no 
doubt be a two CD price tag of £20 or 





more. Unless the price is 
right, Video CD will go the 
fidrn* way as Betanm. 

Pout Matsheios, St Leonards 
on Sea 



Your am eras 'ire those shared by 
thousands of game-playing Amiga 
owners, but they will protwWf remain 

unfounded. The MSt spaces amiable on 
CD-ROM discs offer artists more flexibil- 
ity, not lest. 

For example! the Sony corporation receilSfy 
bought mere than JOYJ Silicon Graphics work- 
stations which, we believe, will be used to pro- 
due? original 3D rendered cartoon? and inlsv 
scenes pr games. 

Many of the larger software houses, Ocean 
included, luirx followed sail, and the result of 
this huge intrejise irt graphics throughput and 
the benefits of She CD medium will be even 
mare stunning iniros of the type for which 
Psygnosis are already famous. 

If anything, this explosion in She amount of 
space available to artists will result in more 
lenosy for graphical excellence rather than 
Sen. Check out the intro to the latest CD$l 
release of iames Pond if you don't believe me. 

As for advertisements which we are forced 
to walch through. Can you imagine any com- 
pany being so stupid as to force an unwilling 
audience so sit through three minutes of 
advertising? 

We are already familiar with game intra 
screens proudly touting the name of the sup- 



plier*, und ten minutes of trailers 
on most rented pidees, yet we dtn\ I 
complain about those and don't have to 

walch them ifm don't n<ani to, 

The most probable outcome it that video- 
style ads mill appear on CDM dues for gomes 
lo be released, but even so, most game players 
will welcome a chance lo see She game in 
action rather then trust to a magazine ndm 

How many of us fast foueard through the 
GH movie trailers on a rented vidm unhi ri'r 
spot a film we are interested in, then stop and 
play that particular trailer? 

Your concerns about vast digitised garner 
are shaded by many, but T*f won't sft' games in 
this format far a white, and the games compa- 
nies will never attempt fo tell something 
which proves ijrrpopwi'flr in any cose. 

Digiiivd sequences will be Jised as iniros 
of cut scenes and are unlikely to appear as part 
of the interactive gameploy. Quite apart from 
anything else, digitised human action will Ian 
a game open lo the film classification 
regulations. 

Again, worries that 60OMb of CD space 
trail be taken up mostly by sit and such ar? 
likely to remain just iwrries. No matter how 
much graphical nonsense surrounds a game, 
the software houses know that a bod game, no 
matter how well packaged, is a westt of 



Game fix 

In issue 63, J Farrar complained about Microprose Bt7 and Virgins Shuttle not 

working on his GvP A530, 1 too experienced problems in running those programs

The solution lo this crisis was as simple as il was effective Programs like these 
overrun the Amiga's operating system but seem unable to allocate the memory 
Ihoy need to run. 

What I found out was that I should lei Ihe Amiga sei aside the memory by stack- 
ing the program lo at leasl 50 per cent more than the program size. 

As an example, using icon information from Workbench shows that B17 la 
320,000 bytes in size. Change the stack size from the delault 4.096 to 460,0 DO

are a traditional gamer with a capital T 
and in a wry stmrfr minority, 

Wrong end of 
the stick 

I'm afraid yoa have vastly overrated the 
CD32. AGA makes no sens* in a games 
D8i rune today. 

I was quite horrified to see Oscar run- 
ning on it. All enemy objects stuttered 
ikmg at 25 frames per second. This i- m- 
on! I hey woe tiny! How is CD32 going to 
I", with large bwtt-'em-up character*? It 
can't compete with 5NES or the Mega 
Drive if it can't move better quality images 
lithe same rate -50Hz. 

ACA is a compromise, retaining bit- 
planes for backward compatibility, 
vital for a computer but not for a console. 
It needs new software! This \v,v- an 
opportunity to introduce a true step for- 
ward by switching to byte-pej>pj*el 
graphics. 

This is the most elegant and efficient 
waj of doing graphics. You get a big 
increase in fleniibili ty once the units dealt 
With by processor and RAM are equated 
to the abstractions of graphics algorithms. 
Forget endless bit-masking and shift- 
tag. This helps image pn messing, art pack- 
ages, colour DTP, real time 3D game 
environments, and 2D sprite drawing. 

CD32 has this planar chip, but it 
doesn't use DMA, Conversion will still 
take an entire video frame of precious 
pressor time, so don't espect to - 
D at high frame rates. 1 doubt it will 
match the speed of Mega CD's 3D hard- 
ware sprites as demonstrated in 
Thunderhawk. 

The Amiga is supposedly a graphics 
machine, but if has a slow bitmap, and this 
is why it is dying. When wjII thJj be recti- 
fied with true DMA-to-video read-out? 
Can Commodore survive long enough.

and aren't Amiga games now committed 

to the idea of running screen conversions?

Answer number ant: Tlte Amiga is not dyiu^, 

it is still tlti' test ailing home computer in 
Britain. End of false rumour. 

Answer number two: How many miscon- 
ceptions about the games industry can one 
cram into a single letter? Trite, the f'C and 
consoles have certain advantages ova Die 
Amiga, but have mix really looked at the 
games scene over the past yew 7 

A healthy games' industry is ant fa ti&iclt

existing games, or just selling bucket-loads. 

Diggers. Flashback, Mired Guns, and Light TingefS 

Syndicate, all of which originated on the U\ not very often I resort to your pages, 

Amiga, are ampk testament io M but [ feel I must protest in this 

industry which still ha- i Got case. Wr ire all familiar

until at ma game which unlir-e- ,'.'.'.■- sort of 
PC-to-Amigti graphics arrattsion, il wmild he 
churlish and over-cyttkat to doubt its 
potential. 

Yes, in today's game platting world, the 
Amiga's bitplane graphics haw certain histori- 
cal disadvantages, but had Commodore 
released a machine with absolutely no ampeti- 
biliiy with existing software, ae would have 
received thousands of letters of complaint. 

Far better, don't you agree, to offer the best 
of both worlds by retaining compatibility yet 
making it easier to software houses to me PC 
graphics? 

Finally, to JwM Up MegttCD Si a standard 
by which any games mm hint am be fudged is 
ludicrous. MegaCD tins been slated hy the 
toast important people in the games industry, 
the buying public, who have token one good 
rtntf and left it toetl alone. 

With its dated 16-ha graphics, high price 
tog, lousy sound, and two year old game sce- 
narios, MegaCD is about as likely to survive as 
a badly wounded turkey in a Batch Casshty- 
ftyk tkoot-oui on Christmas Eve. 

It nvitld be silly to predict that CDJ2 is 
going to sell a million units in its first wear, 
hut by the same token it would be foolish and 
cynical to deny Commodore's exciting new 
machine ,-t few months to prove itself.

development left in 
it. 

Consoles can be 
discounted. They 
are a fine form of 
entertainment, but 
the only games

betray their incredi- 
ble dependence on the

ing population, and the 
games available are of a very nrrr- 
h . '■'.' oasfe. 

As for your assertion that the Amiga can- 
not offer beat-'em-ups to rival the Mega 
Drive, can I fust mention Body Blows and 
invite you to compare it to Street Fighter 2? 

Keep an eye on Body Blows 2, soon to 
appear as a special msion for the CD32, then 
tell me haw stow Amiga games are. You slag 
off Oscar for its "slow" 25 frames per second 
movement, but by comparing this to 5tilh ; 
screen refresh speed rather than a pixel move- 
ment speed, you confuse the issue. 

QtW :■■ m mootk if not smootlter than, 
the majority of console games, costs less, and 
man colours on screen. As this is the 
/frhf platform game of its kind on CD32 for- 
mal, at can onlv expect the genre to improve 
rapidly. 

'i i'.'i also Ban far too witling to put down 
CD32's ability, to convert and use byle-per- 
pixe! graphics end use them in a smooth 
game-playing environment.

every month when, 
I pop down to

see another type

I am talking about 
the stealing of maga-

many times have you 
seen your favourite maga- 
zine on the shelf without a

acceptable in a community where people 
have enough problem', i fa piracy. 

Not only does this crime put potential

it also gives the shop owner a gi od 
reason for mat stocking it. 1 have now

We are in complete agreement. Sinct

Lately, with the resurgence in hare

Pet hate 

I hate hard drives, or at least the unstable 
variety. 

Three days ago, I was nea r the end ot a 
5OO00 word story when my hard drive, 
after two years of faithful service, 
popped its clogs, shuffled off this mortal 
coil, and generalk expired. 

Repeated attempts at resuscital 
through the good offices of DiskSul. 
retrieved some files and data, but 
the majority were lost and after - 
hours of armed struggle I was forced to 
raise the white flag and format the 
bastard. 

All 1 have left of my 50,000 words an 
a few pages of print out (barely 5,000 
words' WOrtfa), and an early file tif the 
first chapter. 

As I said, I curse all hard drives to - 
ninth circle of hell and baik. OK 
so 1 should have backed the damn thiriK 
up, but last time [ did that using 
Quarterback 4.(1, the eighth floppy in a 
series of over thirty developed a 
read /write error, thus rendering the 
backup useless.

Although compressing an image from 
A4 to the size you see invariably improves 
the overall look, lite toll scale output is eas- 
ily thy best colour hard copy yet available 
lor the Amiga. 

The question is; How much are you 
willing to invest to enjoy the glossy output 
it provides? First there's the cost of the 
printer itself,, add the ribbons and of 
course the special paper or transparency 
film and the Primera tails squarely into the 
pro market. 

At present the Primera is limited to 
203dpi with its existing Amiga driver 
However a photo-reajistk kit is already 
axailiible for the Mac and PC which quite 
literally does as its name suggests. 

Unfortunately the Amiga driver is still in 
development, but rest assured as soon as 
the Amiga version arrives it will be thor- 
oughly tested in Amiga Update. 

As you may have noticed., I'm very 
impressed by I he Primera, The output is 



excellent and reasonably quick at around 

two minutes a page, and the registration of 
the component colours is again excellent. 
My only concern is that this could degrade 
with prolonged use. 

In short, for those who don't actually 
make money from their artistic exploits the 
Primera is just a tad too expensive. Having 
said that, if you can envisage recouping 
your investment in the form or I -shirts, 
projector slides or framed 24-bits, the 
Primera la the latest "'must have" dream 
machine for any Amiga 
artisan.

■ GRAPH I CS 



I" t seems that everywhere you turn 
the' edavi a new low cost 24-bit 
card is popping out of the hot little. 
oven of graphic development, As profes-" 

■tonal users demand a better true 24-bit 
display from their machines and find thai 
AGA does not meet all their needs, a suc- 
cession of manufacturers have attempted 
;,• nil the gap with cheap cards that do 
just about anything. 

Piccolo is the latest to boast retar- 
getable graphics (KTQ, Workbench emu- 
lation, and a bundled paint package, but 
[his time there's a bit more to the act. 
Among other thing*. Piccolo offers its 
own on-hnard b litter, anil the software 
supplied, free with the package is superb . 

Sitting on a Zorro card, Piccolo will 
automatically sense whether it is in a 
Zorrn II (A15O0/2M0) or Zorro 111 
(A3flOI>/44X)0) slot and change its mode of 
operation accordingly, sa it is compatible 
with any of the larger Amigas and works 
well with all of them. In what is fast 
becoming 3 standard display technique, 
video signals are fed from the Amiga to 
the board, then passed on to the monitor. 

This method allows for a simple pass- 
through when the board is not being used 
and makes possible a pain-free single 
monitor set-up. In addition, though, it nofl 
the much more pleasing result of making 
the board transparent to the user, and 
after only half an hour one ceroid be for- 
:',i'. at for forgetting there was a card in 
these At all. 

Software is supplied on four disks and 
Includes a wealth of high quality material. 
The ECS libraries and utilities form the 
main system software and enable Recede 
to function, and two paint packages top 
off the bill- Installation is painless, and the 
novice should find little to worry about 

My only concern here is with the ECS 
libraries These are crucial to the opera- 
tion of any board which uses them for 
RTC or intuition support, and having 
encountered them several times over the 
post couple Df months, I've been less than 
impressed on occasion with their reliabil-

ity, Viona Development bu^-fi* and 
upgrade the libraries constantly, and the 
latest release is much more stable than the 
mm software we saw at AC, but there are 
still problems, On installation, EGS 
refused to function on the A15M>, but 
when Piccolo and its software were trans- 
ferred to the MOM everything worked 
fine. 

PROMISING 

Inconsistencies of this kind area bane 
and exactly the sort of thing to kill a piece 
of hardware or software before it has a 
chance to develop, If this happened to 
EGS it would be a great pity, because ECS 
not only promises compatibility across a 
number of graphics cards, but a smooth 
and pleasurable working environment, 



The Piccolo 24-bit graphics card offers 

good hardware and a great software 

collection, as Stevie Kennedy found out

I Amiga Computing Christmas 1993 



Apart from the initial hiccup with the 
AlSUti, Piccolo's software was stable dur- 
ing most of the test with the exception of 
Workbench emulation, which will have to 
be worked on. Many programs refused to 
work under EGS, and some even caused a 
crash, 

In particular, the retargeting utility 
found problems with packages which 
open more than one screen at the same 
time under different resolution. 

ADPro and ImageFX were prime 
offenders, the former bombing oul when 
.1 preview screen such as Crop Visual was 
opened, the latter flipping out at startup, 

Piccolo loaders and savers are avail- 
able for both these packages, so the prob- 
lem can he circumvented, and there are 
libraries for use with Real3D and 
Imagemaster. 

However, EGS still doesn't have 
Workbench emulation Rood enough to 
match that offered by Retina or Picasso, 
and the retargeting utility does not offer 
control over refresh modes. 

Although a last ditch method to coax 
unco-operative programs into life on an 
RTG card, editing the way the board di* 
plays each program individually is the 
only way to sort out glitches such as those 
which afflict Imagine when running 
under both 1'ieasso and Piccolo. 

Both cards will redirect Imagine to the 
24-bit display where things move along a 
little faster and smoother, hut when mov- 
ing an object Ofl-Kreen, a trail of orange 



Una Is left behind or a wave of cor 
tion makes it difficult to see what's [ 
on in detail. The program is still 11- 
and redrawing the screen using Ami| 
forces a refresh to get rid of the cor 
tion, but it comes back with every

is an ECS package from the ground up, 
using all EGS gadget boxes, intuition 
driven, and screen modes. It is therefore 
very stabJe and benefits from the advan- 
tages of the EGS way of working. 

24-BIT IMAGES 

With a 2Mb ['iccolo, this means that 
full size 2+-bit images can be opened in 
their own windows, H m.inv as the user 
like;., and brashes cut and pasted between 
them. In addition, the package would 
appear to make fid] use of Piccolo's Hit- 
ter, as screen update is von List Ear a 24- 
bit package- and all movement and 
dragging operations work in. full colour. 

When, say, the palette requester is on- 
screen and is dragged to another position, 
it doesn't change into a highlighted box, 
but instead is dragged smoothly and with 
no fuss around the screen. 

Brushes are likewise smooth and easy 
to use, and can bv limed in a preview box 
at the bottom of the tool box until needed. 




r }r it one of tht Btit bundled paint package* yau (nulti wish for 



tares are also present and in full 
Mlth, including the all-powerful den- 
i-ry gadget, which not only provides 
fur gradually fading colours, but can 
a* ueed to "feather" a brush Into the 



imago. With the use of a density set- 
ting, the user can blend brushes from 

various origins with l he present 
Image and there needn't be an ugly 
hard edge In sight. 






As every file has its own window, the user 

can scroll around an image using the cur- 
sor keys or simply puH the drag bars to 
Ilk- ri-i|ui red position. 

This is not only very quick, but also 
negates the need for a big edit function, 
and means that when working serosa two 
or more images the artist never has to 
jump between spare pages or scroll 
around a huge page looking for the other 
pic hires. 

Painting tools are on the whole very 
good, though there are a couple of serious 
omissions. No anti-aliasing for test is one 
booby, as is the absence of a gradient fill 
option, but the rest of the package is so 
smooth and easy to use that one can 
almost forgive what in another paint pro- 
gram would result in a hurried trip to the 
bin. 

The airbrush tool is a particular delight, 
with full control over the size, power, and 
form of the nozzle. Thin lines of paint sur- 
rounded by wisps of thinner colour, rings 
of colour, and the more traditional spray 
can effect are possible, and the user can 
create new effects using the control panel 
if necessary. 

NO WAITING 

Brush operations are standard, with 
shear, flip, re-si2e, and rotate working as 
you'd expect, but in keeping with every- 
thing else there's no wailing around for a 
brush to reappear once rotated. Painter 
lakes care of business very quickly. 

I would have liked a perspective tool 
and perhaps some sort of brush feathering 
option, but to be fair to the package, these 
are usually the domain ol' expensive add- 
on packages such as TVPaint 2„ and 
Pico Pa inter is after all a bundled program. 

Other features which stand out .ire the 
program's use of convolutions and colour 
processing controls. These are similar to 
those used by other packages and work 
well, if in a faintly (ttjd vil way, and the 



embossing effects one can wrest from 
them are impresBiv*, 

When you combine a fast cheap 
graphics card with impressive software 
the likes of which this board boasts as a 
freebie, you have a winning package 
which should grab for itself a chunk of 
the 24-bit display market. 

The £130 video module, when 
released, wit] also provide Piccolo with 
direct composite and Y/C output tmm 
its as yet unused connectors, and when 
this happens there is every possibility 
that Piccolo might become an impressive 
video performer into the bargain. 

For the moment, Piccolo would benefit 
bom an improvement in the F-GS libraries 
and In particular some close attention to 
the reliability of the EGS Workbench emu- 
lation utility. Until this is brought up to 
the standards of Picasso and Retina. EGS 
cards in general will Lag behind, 
despite the huge potential ul

off, and my Amiga ground to a halt. As 
the thunder roared outside, I re-set the 
trip at my main fuse bo* and turned the

mean, I had a trip switch and two fuses 
between the Amiga tind the mains, so 
what could go wrong?

how can I prevent this sort of disaster

this may not be the case.

the 1992 range and the 1934 range. If the 
A 1200 was the last Amiga d&xkpment we 
wm going io see for a eoapte of years, it 
would be pwj bad ittwt indeed, because con- 
tinual development is the only way a 
•mil hint 1 can survive in today's fast mavitiR 
world. 

As for Productivity mode, you'll need 
both Kickstart 2.04 and the Super Douse 
chip to make use of this and other £CS screen 
modes. 

Dumb card 

FA friend ot mine has a PC lap- 
top which utilises the same 
smart cards as the A 1200, and 
he has a 64k battery backed up SRAM 
card and a standard 1Mb cafd- 

Both work perfectly and both enhance 
the way the laptop ivurls, vel when 1 fry 
them on my A12O0 they're not nearly as 



Pricey monitor puzzle 



■y |f, as most reviews say, the 1942 monitor is a bi-sync 
IW and will display all AGA screen modes, why don't 
Commodore retail il as a cheap replacement lor (tie 
tpfl4? It uses the same case and sound circuitry, so why is it so 
expensive? 

Fair enough, it has a belter tube, but a lower price would 
result in much higher sales {they musl have sold thousands of 
1084s). thus keeping cash How healthy il nothing else. 

When a company Is In the sort ol financial hate Commodore 
have dug lor themselves, surely il makes sense to cut prices and 
sell aggressively in bulk 1 

On a more technical note, how do I work out from my screen 
resolution the frequency needed to dlsptay it? 

Adam Cufhbwtson, London 



r 



Commodore's reasons (or the marketing decisions 
they take are never easy to work out. but trie reason 
tor ffte 1942 's relatively high price ponnl is given in your 



question. The 1940 ttas s dot pitch of about .39. the same as the 
medium resolution 1034. though it is capable ot screen modes 
itte 1064 would not handle. The 194,2 monitor, homvar. has a 
much batter dot pitch of .28, similar to SVGA monitors, and thus 
has a much better quality, and more expensive. CRT. Easy 
answer, eh? 

Calculating vertical frequencies is a simple matter at multiply- 
ing the number of tines the scanning beam must draw by the 
number of times it must do this per second. Using a 50Hz 
refresh rate, the calculation comes to; 

number of lines k 5D = vertical frequency 

So, for example, the maximum vertical overscan size ot a hi-res 
no flicker screen is 550 lines. This multiplies by 50Hz to jive tha 
vertical frequency of 27MHz. Your monitor would have to be 
capable of accepting signals of this frequency betore il would 
display this mode. 



Serial printer 

"—-j I have Itte opportunity tt 

buy a cheap old printer "- 
next to nothing, but I d 
know what make it Is. The casing 
unbadged. though the printer ribT 
looks very similar to standard Ep 
types, and the only clues to lis 
I are a set of DIP switches and 
j serial interface wilh a six-pin cat 
I connection, 

I think it was used In a sou 
office churning out listings, s 
should at least have a fa si draft c 
rate, but can you tell me if there 
any way of connecting it to ■ 
Amiga? 

L Crictiton, CleveU 

The connections for 

printer's serial cable .... 
- be easy enough la suss 
What you have is probably an 
Mannesman or Epson printer, at 
of which used a sin-pin serial 
nterlace 

Lightwave, a company speciali 
in cables of att sorts, stock a six-pr 
to standard 25-pin D-ptug cable wMp 
wilt allow you lo connect the pn 
to the Amiga's serial port. Ph 
them on QS1-B3Q 5003. ask tor l 
number MCL-532, and you should 
on your way. 

Ju$l make sure that tftera it ~ 
gender clash between the cable i 
the pons (adaptors are available 
this is the case), and use an Epson o 
Mannesman Tatty printer driver. Y 
might not get top class results, I 
the printer should serve well enou 
for listings, letters, and so on. 



good, Rather than making the roach 
run smoother because it has more i 
ury, it stems if anything to go sJo 
and I Wflfl very disappointed , Win 
the A1200 so bad at using smi 
cards? 

B Morrison, Y\ 

F< The A 1.2 00 is fine at hs 
tmari cards, it's fast il- 
cards themselves are pre; 
stupid. 

PCMCIA cards are 16-M and they 
to the Amij/a ncrois att 8-Mf dais

slower than the chips built into the A3/H

ne could be forgiven 

at this time of year for 
thinking that Britain 
•as a nation of shoppers 
•sther than, as Napoleon 
: aimed, shopkeepers. 

At the height of the seasonal 
buying binge, millions of 
::unds rush from pocket to 
:ash register every hour, 
advertisements become ever 
Twre shrill and demanding as 



As Santa heaves into sight an 

the horizon and thousands of 

shoppers descend on Britain s 

retail centres, Amiga Computing 

tries to put things in 
perspective for the new Amiga 

owner struggling to survive 

the Christmas period with wallet 

and sanity intact 



the choice is a bewildering 
one, Add to this the huge 
range of printers, floppy drives, 
and accelerators and the deci- 
sion on what to buy begins to 
assume nightmare proportions. 
Within this short supple- 
ment, we've tried to cram as 
much information as we can on 
the essential low-cost extras 
every A1200 owner will want to 
make his or her own, Printers, 



tie big 25th approaches, and 

-ens ions rise as we fight for bargains to eak out that thin- 
- ng budget. 

New owners this year, most of whom will be enjoying the 
delights of the A1200, have more choice than ever before in 
•erms of software and hardware, and as last months 
Software Encyctopaedia should have answered most of forget to read Amiga Computing every month 
your questions on the software front, we'll now concentrate 
y\ the latter. 

Banging a new hard drive or 4Mb of fast RAM in a 
machine is a sure ticket to more computing pleasure, but 



hard drives, and the rest of the 
gang are covered, and you'll find RAM expansions dealt 
with by the round-up in the main magazine. 

There should therefore be enough to guide most first time 
peripheral purchases, but for more in-depth reviews and the

Roclite 

II speed and style is what you're leefcmg for from a (loppy 
the floclite is Ihe dnve of your dreams. The unit itself is by 
far the smallest, slimmest and fastest drive we had on 
test At roughly twice the speed ol the standard 
Commodore internal 1*8 orally impressive - and barely 
makes a sound in the process, 

Unlike same of the opposition, the floclite comas with 
berth anti-dick and anli-vnus when when combined with its 
pure elegance and speed make it a very attractive buy. 

If you're looking for a stylish slimline drive that can 
outpace the opposition bul that still reiails al a very 
respectable price, Floclite is the answer.

lo their credit I'd be surprised is Ihe very first unit out ot

Sturdy, reliable, bormfj, noisy, that's Ihe Cumana - in

Volkswagen Beetle.

Power PC88OB 

How here's a drive that's lit to bursi with additional 
features. Aside Irom werfcing as a standard floppy the unit 
also boasts an anti-virus mode which immediately write 
protects alt Ihe your floppies by completely disabling the 
write-to option. 

The next feature is a slightly dubious addition which 
takes the form ot a software/hardware copying system 
a-ntitled Blitz copy. As you might have guessed this. isn'l 
meant for normal AmigaDQS copying tasks and that's 
about as tar as we should go with this particular line c J 
thought. 

Although rather long the drive still remains surprisingly 
thin considering Hie amount ot hardware stuffed inside - 
the anti-click, Blitz plus, Ihe standard drwe mechanism, As

II you're repelled by the designer label look, the Zydec 
offering provides ihe minimalist styling and space 
conscious design that any environmental tnendly Auriga 
user would happily swap his or her 2CV for. 

Although small and amazingly quiet considering ihe 
lack of any ami-click hardware, the Zydec does have a 
lew faults m comparison to its more bulky and feature- 
packed counterparts. 

Because of the extremely shm design, Zydec have 
been forced to add vends on the top and lo the rear of the 
drive. Although this may seem a perfectly acceptable 
design, a coffee spin could soon change your mind. 

It you're looking for a basic but efficient drive 'he Zydec 
is fine, but considenng the extra feature* on many of the 
opposition I must admit it wouldn't be my tirsl choice

M1B30XA 



New irom Microbotcs, the M1230XA range offers both the 
cheaper EC 68030*5 alongside standard 030s with built-in 
MMUs - both of which can employ optional 668671 or two 
FPUs. The vanous designs range From 4Q to SQMHz with 
RAM configuration ranging from to 0Mb. To add the 
finishing touch a battery backed-up clock has been thrown 
in lor good measure. 

In keeping wilh the Microcodes tradition for quality 
engineering, Ihe boards use mostly surface mounted 
components and display a general build quality which 
make them hard to beal. 

Price Watch: M123QM £177 17 to £711.99

MBXIEDOz 



As Ihe name suggests, the MBXlJOOz is yet another 
product from Micmbotics range, but Ihis lime s*pans«n is 
strictly limited to RAM and the addilion of an FPU. Unlike 
its cousin, the MBX range starts, wilh 63061 FPUs runnmg. 
at 14 MHz with either 0, 4 or tyuto o r HAM. 

Aiternalively you can opt (or the 68882 running 
between 2S and 50MHz w*1h identical 0, 4 and BMb HAM 
configurations. As you'd enpect the same Mic robotics 
huilrJ quality is inherent throughout the range and like the 
XA series each can! comes complete wirii a clock. 

However I'd certainly question the wisdom of investing! 
in a 4Mb MM Hi 68881 when you could buy a 4Mb 
25MHz 6BSB2 for only £50 extra, | n short, steer dear ot 
the 14MHz variants, they're simply not worth the money,

able m an EC form with a maximum of 40MHz lor both the 
CPU end optional 68802 FPU. Like the other boards il sbjjs

to cater for alt tastes the new duet can be expanded lo 4 
and 8Mb respectively with either 60801/2 FPUs - which 
like the Moobolics boards can be raied up to 5MHi. 

Again like the opposition a battery back-up clock 
comes as standard bul in a break, from tradition all models 
in the PC 1204 range are shipped wrih 4Mb cn-board as 
standard - only when it comes lo Ihe FPU and MHz are 
you .required to make a choice. 

bke the Microbotics boards, the build spec is very 
impressive with most major ccfliponerrts surface mounted. 
Given the choice ifs difficult to pick a winner, as a result

Personal Paint S.I 

Not as well known as it deserves lo be, the latest version 
of Cleanto's paint package is a cheap and effective 256- 
colour register program which does not use HamS, but will 
load these graphics in and convert them to 256 colours. 

Painting toots are much the same as the other pack- 
ages, with the possible exception of the program's use of 
spline curves, and there are several image processing 
functions which can he used to p/va a picture a spend 1 
touch. Ha the most powerful package, PPaint is nonethe- 
less excellent value for money

Scenery Animator 4 

A traditional landscape generator. Scenery Animator has 
been around for vears, and now does a very good job of 
producing 30 HamB countryside. 

Aside from Hie usual trees, clouds, and lakes, Animator 
4 also allows fie user to ocale 'VideoScape 3D objects 
directly in a scene, and to place trees individually, for 
finishing touches. Easier to use, if less powerful than V sta 
Pro. Scenery Animator 4 is an excellent beginner's 
program.

Vista Pro 3 

This virtual landscaper has more options and 
conlrols than Scenery Animator 4, and presents ihe 
user with an exhaustive (and ralher daunting) control 
panel, but doesn'1 offer more m Ihe way of solid features. 
Vista Pro is, however, more llemble for those wishing lo 
put in the effort. 

This MakePatn utility, which is used to craale paths for 
tly-throiigtis. can put together some very complex fiighl 
sequences, and should give animators enough lo be 
getting on wilh.

Citizen Swift 90c 



Perhaps me mM notable aspect of the Swill 90c is 
autcmalic sheet leading, which is something of a novelty 
el this erxl n) tfie market 

In addition the traditional control panel has been given 
something of a going over. Instead: u' an LCD display, 
there's a raw sliding button and menu system. 

Although coasting the odd extra, the SOc isn't the 
qjickc-sl 9-pin you'll Ivor see, with a top speed of only 
240cps - end (hat's using the ropy High Speed Draft fonl 
What's really surprising is "he quality ol the 45cps NLQ 
fonts. While big mages or curves invariably look jogged, 
standard tent output is pretty neal, and is even better than 
the output ot some 24-pms.

Fujitsu DL1150 



Full marks for strangeness, as the Fujitsu is without doubt 
the weirdest looking printer by a long way, Unfortunately 
nil points for the sheet feeder, which is trip*, 
Still, a number ol nice looking built-in LQ fonts aire 
easy to get at from the simplistic front panel. 
Performance-wise it isn't particularly noisy, is medium 
pace at 60cps in LQ «node and has a respectable pnnler 
buffet 

It also has a good range of emulation, though the 
Epson one is not the most common you could ever see. 
Pnnf quality is potentially pretty good since those curves 
and jagged lires are nicely smoothed. 

Throw in the colour option and you've got a large, light- 
ish, easy to use printer that's good for dealing with larger 
amounts ot tent rather than graphics.

Epson LQ-IOO 



After dose inspection of the rather minimalist front panel, 
you suddenly realise that you can't see Into ihe machine 
at all, and that the sheet feeder Is in fad located in the 
bottom ot irta front. This slides out to reveal a 50-page 
single sheel feeder, which is something ol a novelty on a 
dot matrix printer. It hen accept: he paper and slides 
back in again. 

While the Irani panel does allow you to swap between 
the seven built-in fonts (two ol which are scalable), it is 
also an exercise in confusion and requires guesswork or a 
trip to the manual before you are completely familiar 
wilhrL 

As usual lor an Epson ES/P2 printer, the output quality 
is top noich. The LCMflO may be more rough and ready 
than ihe others in the range but it still shares the same 
quality engineenng.

Star LC-EOO 



While your average Star pnnter wouldn't win any beauty 
contests, ihey are usually very competitively priced. The 
LC-20Q is no except on, offering blend oofcs, decent 24- 
prn perfrwienee, and an inexpensive route into colour 

The single sheel leeder slots neatly over the tractor, 
and there is a choice ol exit holes lor paper. The actual 
feeder is pretty good, Ihough there's a slight tendency lor 
paper to slick on a ridge inside and not hit the feed hole if 
you aren't careful. It isn't particularly bad. but it does ccca- 



Citizen Swift SOD 

As you'd expect. Ihe 200 sports line same 
command panel as Its relation with assorted 

sliders and buttons all working in exactly the same 
way. 

Adding Ihe lacr that Ihe sheet leeder is just as 
good, there's also that excellent automatic paper 
feed mechanism. 

Add a snap-olf panel for loot cartridges end you 
have a printer that's physically identical. Where the 
difference comes is in the printer Engine, with Ihe 
200 offering superb 24-pin quality, and a colour 
option, 

OK, so the control panel Is definitely much 
cheaper than the LCD panel on Ihe original Swifl 
series, hut it's also more sophisticated than all Ihe 




sjonally happen. You know when Ihe paper is in :h- 
because when it pnnts the LC- 200 makes a lair oe 
rackel, especially handling graphics - when if starts i 
screech, 

Controlling the printer itself is easy enough with r* 
front panel being an old fashioned buttons and lights ;x 
There are four LQ typefaces, m addition to a draft type 
face. 

Quality-wise it ain't bad, but nehher is it brilliant f 
you're looking for a workJiorse printer rather than a ss 
lion, this could be the answer

Qhese ate hard times, and despite claims to 
the- contrary, there are lots of cowboys 
around eager to make, a last buck and 
relieve you of your cash . 

Mow that is not to say all traders are devious - Indeed, 
ttie cowboys are rapidly becoming fewer and fewer as 
consumer knowledge grows But as our mailhag proves, 
problems still afiound, so how can we minimise any possi- 
ble hassfe? 

If you have a pood relationship with your ioca dealer, 
and you are a regular customer, buying from that source 
is without doubt still the best way. 

He will value your regular custom, and you 
will not have lar to go if problems occur. You will 
also have "an ear to the ground', and it's likely that 
second-hand bargains or special oilers will reach you 
quickly. 

Always ask to see any kit working, be it hardware or 
software. Check that all documentation aHampanyiflg rl is 
complete. Read the warranty, including the small print 
Guard against exclusions such as "Ho liability whatsoever 
is accepted'' and the like. 

Seek discount* 

Hetain your receipt and keep it in a safe place. II the 
ink printout from the lilt-roll is oris ol those laded purple 
varieties, ask the shop owner to ink it in and sign it. Keep 
the packaging (inside a polythene bag in Ihe lotl is a good 
spat). Some warranties require returns in original packag- 
ing. 

Cash has a remarkable e fleet. Always ask for a 
discount for cash, if you have it. Expect at least 10 per 
cent, or ask to have some'lung thrown in with the pnee - ; 
printer leads wlh a pnnter, or disks with a major purchase. 

Ask the owner to demonstrate ihe kit. Box shifter s such 
as the major electoral retailers generally won't know a 
genlock from a oymslip. but a local computer dealer worth 



his salt should be able to talk knowledgeably aboul his 
stock. 

Ask about advice and lips in using (he purchase. If you 
have seen the same gooes advertised cheaper else- 
where, lake the advert and shew it to Ihe owner when 
Discussing price, 

Above all, be friendly, but be firm. Dont he lobbed oft if 
something does not seem completely kosher, like missing 
packaging or homes which looks well used (a possible 
repaired dem) Be wary of opened licence agreements on 
software {copied?) or well-thumbed manuals (previous 
visitor). 

Man order is probably the source of the biggest number 
of complaints, Often the cause is the fault *f the . 
purchaser, in not indicating clearly the enact nature 
of whats needed or failing to provide essential information 
such as correct address or credfl card number. 

I wilt deal wih 
methorJs. ol purchase 
later, but when 
ordenng by post, be it 
by phone or letter, be 
prepared for the 
pitfalls. Have the 
adverl in Irorrt of you 
when you place (tie 

order. React Ihe small print. Look oul for elusion clauses 
or exemptions. Telephone the company to ensure the

Wang lhan I didl Ask how long a guarantee repair will 
take. If a manufacturer guarantees turnaround within x 
worfting days, (hen Ihey are liable to compensation if trey 
fail to achieve ibis. 

II you do have a problem, and you have fulfilled all of 



the proper procedures, without any joy, here are some 
useful tips, Write to the company hy Recorded Datrvery, 
addressing your correspondence to the managing director 
Slating Clearly the lull Circumstances. 

Write to any trade organisalion to whom the retailer or 
mail-order company might belong. These organisations 
always have codes of practice which dotal minimum stan- 
dards expected of members, 

Write to your credit card company en- osirg a copy of

dispute. Write to your local Trading Standards or 
Consumer Prelection Dept. explaining all the facts and 
enclosing copies of correspondence. 

ThBy investigate false or misleading description's,, as 
wall as malpractice, and may prosecute, Don't get 
angry and abusive, you just end up sounding stupin mr 
acting like a pra: Don't contemplate any s»lly actions such 
as distributing detamalory literature in Irani of Ihe shop. 
This has happened in the past and the culprit was sued 
for £2,000 tor damages. 

If goods have tailed to arrive, n ng the company often, 
being polite but linn, tat accept the offer of credit notes, 
or any similar cartels. 

Final option 

When the waiting becomes unacceptable, wrlle by 
Recorded Delivery stating your intention to offer a knitter 
seven days grace after which you will not accept the 
goods 

So, after all of this gnel, you still are not salislied. Well 
there is one final option, and one you might not have 
considered as an alternate, bul you can sue. 

The Small Claims Court was set up to solve just 
this hind of problem. It. handles disputes up to 
£1,000, It is last, inexpensive and fairly user-friendly. 
Disputes are settled in a non -threatening environment, 
and ihe arbitrator will rule (here and then on :he- 
outoome. 

If you want to consider his oplion, go along 
to your local county court where you can obtain 
leaflets which explain in detail hew the whole process 
works. 



What are my right 

The laws which determine consumer protection are: The Supply of Goods (Implied Terms) Act 1973; The 
Consumer Credit Act 1974: Trie Unfair Contract Terms Act 1977; The Sale of Goods Ac) f 979: The Supply Df 
Goods and Services Act 1 982. 

These laws cover all ol the UK except Scotland, where common law covers most situations * otherwise 
specific issues are dealt with on an individual basis, All of these laws are written in the usual gobbledygook 
you might expect Irom lawyers, bul in the context of how you stand, Ihe basic principles are: 

When you buy something, me seller and yourself enter inlo a contract. A contract can be both written 
and/or verbal. Any dispute you have is solely with the seller, Trie manufacturer has no involvement. 

Don't be fobbed off by "I'll send It back" stories. Goods must be ot merchantable quality", that is lault 
free and reasonably fit lor the purpose for which ihey are sold. 

The law also covers second-hand goods, but the condition will be reflected in the price, so you are not 
legally entitled to "top quality", Goods must be "as described", whether on the package, in an advert or by 
telephone. 

You are entitled lo reject replacement or alternative items. Goods must be "fit for the purpose 
described". Wood glue must glue wood, if any of the above conditions are not met, you are entitled to one 
ol three options, depending usually upon how long you have had the goods, or how serious the problem is. 

Firstly, you can reject the goods immediately and get your money back. Or you can obtain a cash 
payment to make up Ihe difference between what you paid and the reduced value ot the goods you bougfil, 
Finally, if you both agree, you can get a replacement or a Iree repair. 

Do remember the element of fairness, You are not entitled to any form of redress if you examined an ilem 
when you bought It and should have noticed any problems, or were told about them at the lime. 

You can 'I expect compensation if you did ihe damage yourself or simply decided afterwards thai you 
didn't want it, And if you receive something as a present, then the original buyer musl pursue 
any problems,

■ HARDWARE 



When you first buy your 
Amiga you're u> plt'ased 
w Ltti it, you don't give thu > il d 
floppy drive J second thought. It's there 
Internally in the case, and whetstone do you 
need to know? Well, soon you realise that 
one floppy is never enough, and like FLAM 
ur lun.1 disk -\;i..i\ miu i.im'i have too much 
of it. 

Copying disks is a nightmare without 
another drive, so it's advisable to have more 
than otv at your disposal. Theft's no reason 
why you shouldn't have more, but then you 
rum into some di ft Leu hies which you will 
need to be <iw ( iTe of, Rut then that's why 
we're here, isn't it? Aren't you the lucky 
. . ,, . 

When yoe get hi the shop and say; "Cm I 
have a ikippv dmv please? ' the shopkeeper 
will suck his fhwkh in like n mar estimating 
your plumbing bill. 

"What sort of drive?" he'll say. 

"Er..." you'll snap back cleverly. 

And you 11 feel a bit of a prat, won't you? 
Not to worry. Here's what he's talking 
about 

Internal drives are the ones like the one 
which is already in your Amiga. It you haw 
1 big box Amiga, like I [500, 2000, 3000, or 
400D, then you have room for more internal 
dllves. Tf you have a 500, 600 or 1200 you 
don't. There is room for only one drive in 
the case and ifa already there. 

External drives connect to the machine 
via the external drivt' amnnetur, on lfit- tack 
of the machines marked Disk Drive. This 
means that the external drive has its own 
one, and a lead which plugs into the port at 
the back. There are single drives and double 
drives, which obviously increases 11k power 
overload, but increase yiour productivity, 

The size of the drives is not usually 
important, as most Amiga drives are 15in, 
but some can be had which are 525m. These 
are for IBM style big (very) floppy disks, and 
are only for use with IBM fmulators like the 
Bddgecards. 

A number of good high density drives 
are around too, which run di^ks which bote 
very similar to the normal double density 
disks you run all the lime, apart from an 




extra hole on the opposite side to tlk- x-sritf 
protect tab, and a little I ID symbol on the 
bottom near the sliding cover. 

These disks format to 1.76Mb, or twice 
the capacity of a regular 880k floppy, sim- 
ply by having a disk which is more dense 
than regular disk media. 

This is just like the difference between 
chrome and metal cassette tapes, and tlie 
cheap ferric oxide ones you get free from 



Speed comparisons 

The speed of floppies is terrible, compared lo hard disks and CD ROMs. Transfer rates 
artd access limes are tossed about like so much technical salad, out the basic idea Is 
Ih is. Try; il. If it's last enough, buy it, il rt sucks then go elsewhere. 

Also, access limes and transfer rates are not interdependent. It may Take only 19ms 
to access the disk, but II it takes ten minutes to transfer ihe thing, what's the point? 



Floppy 

Typically have access times which are 
quite fasl these days, in trie 20ms 
mark, but the transfer rates are awful, 
in the tO0 to 20Dkps range, so targe 
files take ages to load/copy/save. 

Hard drives 

Most HD manufacturers head far the 20 
to 30ms access times, and transfer 
rates of around 650 to 700k per second. 



Amiga Computing Christmas 1993 



CD ROM 

Faster then floppies but slower than 
herd disks, although the speed Is 
gelling up now. Most adverts 
lor conventional CDs talk about 
transfer rates of about 150k per sec- 
ond, access time aboul 500ms 
Double spaed models run at 
aboul 300kps, with access times 
around 230ms, and ihe newer quad 
speed devices are running up to 
600kps 



the garage. There are a number of new 
drives which offer optical or "floptical" 
technology for capacities cif 20Mb and 
l2HMb per disk, but these are rare at the 
moment '*nd obviously you pay through 
the nose for the drives and floppies Alike, 

These are bordering on removable fwed 
oz bard disks, but without, of coarse, tht 
fast access times of those mediums, Well go 
into sjx*ed in a moment but take it from me 
tnr now out speed is a bonus. 

OEMs 

Drives themselves are almost always 
made by thb> ^ame manufacturers, like 
Citizen or Panasonic. These are called 
Original Equipment Manufacturers or 
OEMs. The drive* can be used with any 
computer, but they need a special interface 
to work witli the Amiga specifically. 

This interface is built in to the case by the 
vendor - whoever builds and sells you the 
drive- which explains why most drives are 
as reliable as each other and about the same 
price,, as thev are all pretty much based on

The power Overheads required to run a 
drive from the computer's power supply 
arc quit*' shallow mi .m Amiga SOT/SKI arid 
so daisy chaining two or three drives 
together isn't really possible like it would 
be on a ZOffl), which has a more powerful 
power supply. 

The best floppy drive in the world is 
Col) ,1-1 got*! as the disks you put mtu it. It 



you buy in hulk or reformat cheap disks 

you will get errors of some sort at some | 
imir. I In- much is a fact. 

The only way to minimise (notice I didn i 
say remove) these problems is to always use I 
new disks for important data, and alt- 
but always, back up- Another good ca 
having more than one disk drive unit! 

The thinj> is that floppies worn out c< 
irradiated by hi-fi speakers, and the dm

around the shops with a disk in yc 
pocket, and (he next guy in the- queue fa 
the bii^ hai ,i I bin electromagnet in h»| 
|ockey shorts. 

It could happen. If you use duff mti.ls 
don't make back-ups, the perverted gem 
with the electromagnetic appliance dnwi 
his pants (<>r whatever) is going to kill 
yoiu* data, elquicko. 

Also ensure that you screw the little ce 
net ting screws on your external disk dri* 
leads into the port at the back ot j i 
machine. 

I'uLLing the disk drive lead out i* one i 
to ensure that your machine and the dx 
drive get fried, as the drive gets it?, pot 
lmm the Amiga down this port. So makrj 
sure it's securely fitted before yoti turn rhej 
machine on, and don't unplug il unt 
you've powered down. 

Disks get corrupted, and there's reaHj 
way of avoiding it every once and a while. 
We've |ust been into some of the ways yoJ

Jargon 
buster 

access time This refers to how long 
any storage device can locate and 
begin loading 3 pioco of information 
from the disk. See ato Transfer Rate. 

daisy chaining The act o! chairing 

ona drive onto the back of another 
one. 

Some disk drives have another 
drive ppd on the back and you can 
plug another drive into it. The name 
comes from (hs way the drives look 
when fixed together resembling a 
daisy chain. 

DIP switches A little liny row ol tog- 
gle switches fitted to a device or 
motherboard, usually for activating 
functions or configunng a device 

The DIP refers probably to the 
Dual In-line Package, oi the little 
muflMegged chip thai the switches 
are mounted on, and how they are 
soldered onto the board. 

drive click Amiga drives click every 
few seconds or sg because they are 
looking tor a disk in the drive. Some 
PD programs, exist to stop this,, but 
some drives, actually have a hardware 
Solution to (he problem. 

floppy disk Actually most disks 
these days aren't floppy, but they 
were. In the. history ol computing they 
were big 5m or even Sin in in plastic 
things which bent as you were puffing 
them in Ihe drive and were generally a 
pain to work with. Now we have than 
m nice neat 3.5ln hard plastic so we 
can get away wrth abusing them a hit 
more. Not! 

power overhead Daisy-chammg 
drives togelher is a little bit hazardous 
on the A50O. The power overhead 
(the power left alter some is drawn by 
each device down the drive port) 
decreases to very low levels as more 
drives are added. 

One or iwo external drives is all 
you can really get away with, and it's 
always safer to add a drive wilh its 
own power supply if you can. 

slimline dnws used lo be big lunk- 
ing great boxes the size ol a VCR, 
and ihen came the slimline drive 
mechanism 

Some said at the time 'some day 
all drives will be made (his way", and 
(hey were right. 

transfer rate The speed at which 
data is transferred from one device to 
another, like from a modsm to a com- 
puter or the disk dnve to the memory.

For ray tracing and modelling 
fanatics everywhere, Pixel 3D 
Professional has become one <>t 
tmasl wanted add-ons, However,, its 
htening KRP hasn't exactly pen- 
nni rtcord breaking sales. 

i nrtuli. Axiom Software have now 
■nrtened the pot with no) only an extra 
■*n» art freebie but also a special anorak's 
■Mm T-shirt.

r-urupulatian. 

Cut- down 

For the countless ADPro fans out there, 

* Workshop screenehot will no doubt 
wem somewhat familiar. In fact, looks 
aren't all that it has an common with 
ADPro. 

■ iiict r Workshop could almost be 
tombed a* a- cut-down version of 

• i'a excellent ProConJttol batch pro- 
cessing software. With the aid of 

'.-hop, ADPro commands can be 

— . e t - -. I .iiLlrinurii.ilk to each frame n H .-i;i 
■umation, thereby Avoiding the some- 
icrtts terrifying process, of generating your 

- ili'u scripts. 

As a result, Workshop is only really at 
r- fct'St in combination with ADPro - 
*ithough it can still perform impressive 
oompilation and processing without the 
■atstance of its expensive associate 
Although compilation is an important 
•' Hi Workshop, it's by no mt-diis cvm

thing. For example, once an animation is 
generated, you nan convert it to a differ- 
ent resolution and colour combination,. 
combine it with other animations, include 
additional frames, split it into various 
smaller files, delete and replace individ- 



ual frames, reverse Ik- n< tint, flip it and 
eventctk ii 

To aid the editing process, Workshop 
provides the added bonus 01 an on-screen 
frame count producing a large numeric 
read-out over full Kl*tn, full colour 



images - thereby aiding Individual (mine 

M'li\ti<m. 

In addition to graphic talents, audio can 
also play a part with IFF sdmples pi.; 
.it .im point during the animation - 
regardless of whether the anim is looping 
or otherwise. 

Like most other power packages, 
ARexx has been adopted allowing access 
In personalised ARexx ficripts >md poten- 
rial links to other programs. 

All round the addition of Workshop 
certainly doesn't do Pixel 3D Pro any 
harm at all - although a combination of 
ADPro and ProContfol would be a far 
xi,i|-u>riorimage processing combo. 

Still for the dedicated ray tracer the 
new 1'isel 3D Pro is more attractive than 
ever - even though it appears nothing has 
b*een done to improve the rather quirk) 
nature of the main program, which still 
insists on occasionally removing or 
adding the odd face for no good reason,

VIDEO 



Full motion video (FMV) has 
become a monster buzzword 
this year, and one which the 
industry has until recently failed to 
deliver tin Niuv though, Mpeg decoder 
cards are appearing in a steady trickle I'm 
all machine*, and the Amiga is r^gftt in 
there with its first release, the Peg^y 
board from Germain enmpany Helfrich 
International, 

A c«(3 tor all Zorro It m Zcrro 111 
expansion slots, Peggy wmprises the C- 
Cube decodrr hardware, based around 
ihr CL45Q video decoder, and a butlt-in 
genlock to send output to either tlie mon- 
itor screen or the outside world. 

The latter is a little problematic as the 
board has no videaoutput, just RGB on a 
15-pin U-plug, 5D users who wish to 
videotape their Mpe^ movies wif! h.v. e In 
use an RGB to composite encoder. 

Supplied with she l\nli. nuc-if Graphics 
System (ECS) libraries, Peggy utilises 
retar^etable graphics techniques and a 
pa-sji-thTough mode similar to that 
employed by the Piccolo and Picasso 
hoards. Users- connect their Amiga out- 
put to the board's 9-pin input and their 
monitor to the 1 pi-pin connects 

Once set up, Pe^gy panes nil Amiga 
video signals through to the monitor, a net 
mixes its own with them whfifl wkfid to 
by software so thai Mpeg movies can be 
displayed in Workbench windows vising 
the talents of the integral genlock. These 
displays ari' therefore in full video 
colour, which makes for superb previews 
ot the finished Mpeg prqjet I 

As we go to press, software supplied 
with the board has yd to be finalised, 
and the Mpeg player utility' we were sup- 
plied with used the Peggy hardware for 
real time playback, bul was very basic. It

was impossible to use windows ov?r the 
Workbench screen or on an EGS display 
card, thus limiting the hoard's usefulness. 

For the purposes of creating Mpeg 
streams in the first place, a professional 
encoder program was included with our 
Peggy card, but as this uses the EGS 
libraries, a suitable display card, such as 
Piccolo or Rainbow, must h$ present if 
you Want to use the sof tv. .i . 
Additionally, the professional software 
costs £250 extra, though a more basic 
encoding package will be bundled witfi 
the board. 

The professional software is a dream to 
use and offers complete control over the 
encoding process, Mpeg streams are 
treated as projects within which any num- 
ber of scenes can be included, and the 



scenes, individual frames, or ranges of 
tr.imes can be cut, pasted, and generally 
moved around with ease. 

When the project is set up to the user's 
satisfaction, there are plenty of options 
availably Kir those with specific require- 
ments or a good knowledge of the techni- 
calities of Mpeg, Playback parameters 
include frequency (24, 25 or 30Hz!, image 
size, and whether there is a set rate or file 
size the user requires. 

For example, if the finished Mpeg 
stream was to be used in a game demo 



and needed t« fill no more than 200V 
floppj or H.ird drive, the uner couk 
a target size for the file and 
program would endeavour to meet I 
requirement. 

This might not be possible, of cp 
and in such cases reducing the quahn 
the finished playback or cutting the i 
ject's length would be the only answer 

Standard Mpeg size is 352 st 288, i

What is Mpeg? 

The Mpeg video compression standard, named after the Motion Picture Expert Group 
which formulated the standard in 1991, is a set of rules governing the way in which 
video and audio is compressed such thai the resuming file takes up very little space 
on disk and plays back at full video speed. 

Beginning life as naming more than this, sei of paper-bound rules, Mpeg has npw 
reached the hardware stage with a number ol companies producing decoder chips 
specifically designed lo decompress Mpeg files (known as "streams.") at £5 frames 
per second. Ttie best known example al Ihe moment is C-Cube's chip sel, and i| is 
this sel which Peggy and Commodore's CD32 full motion video cartridge Contain , 

An Mpeg stream contains either video Information alone or combined video and 
audio, and the Mpeg decoder's job is lo extract bolh, A system decoder firsl spills the 
stream into timing, video, and audio information, passing these en lo Ifieir own 
decoder chips. 

Whan Ihe signals have been decompressed, the timing information is used to 
recombine them as a complete PAL or NTSC composite video signal which can be 
displayed on any TV, monitor, or taped by a VCR 

In other wards, from a set of files on hard drive, whether digrtised video or com- 
puter animation files, the Amiga can use Mpeg to create a digilal movie then play il 
back at loll speed. 

Mpeg's only major drawback at the moment is that in its first incarnation, Mpeg-1 , It 
has a lull video frame size of onfy 352 by 298, which works out at lo-ras interlace with 
overscan. Picture quality is Itieretore far from TV broadcast standards, and is lower 
than normal video Quality. 

When compressing and playing back computer animations, the degradation can be 
marked, making Mpeg more suitable for multimedia and games work, hul digital 
videos on CD are slid possible, and as there are many ways in which the Mpeg 
encoder software can be tweaked, ihe original stream can be optimised either for 
smallest storage space or best quality.

Class cruncher 



Mpeg encoding is a oompleit process governed by strict rules 
laid down in the ISO CD11172 standard, and works in a broadly 
similar way \o a OPainl animation. 

Individual frames are not stored as lull frames, bul are inter- 
preted as the drfferenDe fretween one frame and another, which 
means that a finished Mpeg stream need stole only a wry small 
arrounl ol the original frame information. 

To aid in |udging this process, a number of frames, known as 
Intra frames, are stored completely and used as reference points 
in the animation. From these, the encoding program works out 
how much has changed between one point and another. Ihen 
creates "interpolaled* Irarnes, which ane Ihe aclual rjifferances 
stored as code. 

The techniques used to judge changes are known as toward 
prediction and bi-directional prediction, Forward prediction 1$ a 
simple mailer of stopping at an Intra (fame (or L-lrame) and look- 
ing ahead to Itie next lew frames coming Ihrough Ihe encoding 



4 just about 
everything the 
user could want 
in one program % 

offer the user ihe option bo pre-process 
Frames using an ARe.xx script (ADI'm 
scripts or I'roControl scripts would do 
nicely), drop in .1 backdrop picture, clip a 
rectangle from Ihe frame, or apply 1 mn- 





process belore creating Interpolated frames. 

Bi-direchanaS prediction is much more effective because it 
looks forward and backwards la the surrounding frames and cre- 
ates a more accurate picture of animalion changes This method 
also saves much more space than forward prediction, and is a 
lynch pin in Ihe Mpeg encoding process. 

As an example, a 90 Irame Mpeg stream we created tor this 
ancle contained 16 Intra-frames. 15 predicted frames, and 59 
interpolated frames This means lhat two-thirds ol the original 
data has been interpreted by Mpeg as changes and stoned in a 
much more allicienl way 

Total file size for the 90 original frames was 6Mb, an Anim-S 
lile created using (he, frames, scaled la Ihe same size as an 
Mpeg screen, came to 1 .5Mb, and the finished Mpeg stream 
was only 425k in si*e. That's a 72 per cent saving In space, and 
to top ll off the finished lile will play back a! 25 frames per sec- 
ond using Peggy's decoder hardware. 



volution or colour processor. 

This is not the sort of close image con- 
trol one would expect from a simple 
encoder, and keep! just about every- 
thing the user could want to do inside a 
single program. Bundled software is 
nowhere near as professional, and vum II 
have to keep an eye on our updates col- 
umn for news d this as it appears. 

FLIPPING 

At the end of the process, w hen thl 
finished stream is re-played, the 
decoded information appean in tin: dis- 
play window nr screen the user sete 
from the output options, and he or *he 
can flip backwards and forwards 
through the movie using on-screen VCR 
controls. 

Eight levels of slow motion play tuck 
combined with fast forward and single 
step viewing give the user full viywing 
pleasure and ensur* that if there is 
problem with a scene it can be found 
and the exact position noted. 

i'eggy j s a complete Mpeg tool for 
developers and thoye in (he games and 
multimedia industries who nwd to cre- 
ate Mpeg movies on the Amiga. Tht 1 pm- 
feuional encoding software is superb 
and the hoard works perfectly as a play- 
back facility. 

However, with no direct video output 
and no real option to add it at the 
mtinionl, those who can't wait to start 
creating digital movies might be a little 
disappointed.

Weil, we've given you Amos

with it? You nan use it to ffle-

.i even compile programs 

■ormg 3D shjpos, too! 
lt* 3D, like til? compiler and offoer

Hurkls to the Amos command set. Ynu

Amos exponent Phil South 
looks into Amos 3D, in the 
first of a two-part tutorial 



fam running- Although there are a lot of 
eumpie objects on the disk to get you 
pang, you have to create your own objects 
!>..-!£ the OM. You create shapes using 
ves and bolt them together into big- 



sculptures 



#? objects. 

The objects you make can be shaded iOT] 
. i- ;.-,u like, and you can evw draw 
rail bitmaps onto the sides of shapes to 
row? them more interesting. 

program features- a tot of tools for 
*etching r squashing and forming primi- 
r»es, tike tqames, circles, cubes and pyra- 
jads. You copy the primitives to wnrk areas 
on the screen called "shelves", where you 
wvrk on them with the mouse. 

To copy a. shape from the shell it is stored 

"i the ten small ones at the top of the 

tocen) to a shelt you me working in (the 

-wo big spaces underneath) you simply 

.ik the Copy button. 

Once a shape is copied into a working 
■«?!(, you can begin to move it around ami 
iser its structure. You can deform a shape 
r many ways, like squashing and stretch- 
ng Hi* whole shape, or even moving a sin- 
gle side white keeping the rest Df the shape 
-J I. 

You do this by selecting a point, line or 
face, and deforming the selected item by 

eking on the Rotation control (or the 
arrows next (0 it tor finer control) while 
holding the button down and moving the 
- use. 

Selected faces have a special marker on 
faem so you know which is the active face 

lo for 



when doing an operation on & Moving a 
single face is really clever. Here's xvhat 1 

mean: Load a cube info the work slu'!t. 

Select a line on the cube by using the select 
icons down the left-hand side. 

PULL TOOL 

The tall button down the right of the 
selection icons is the Pull tool. Click on 
either end of this to pull the line back and 
forth. Click on another line or face and pull 
it back and forth. Notice how the shape 
changes. 

The ROB tool is used for changing 
colours, allowing you to change fhecotoun 
of the objects and faces on-screen. You can 
list- (he information in this requester to gen- 



erate Amos palettes which are suitable for 
the objects. Once you have reshaped the 
primitives into something a little bit more 
interesting,, you can glue them together to 
make other, miw complex objects. This is 
done simply by selecting the faces that need 
to be glued together on the two objects; and 
once selected Otis is done automatically. 

Shrink the object you just twisted about 
to half the size by squashing it in two 
dimensions. Select your object and click the 
Croup Plus symbol. Now use the 
stretch/shrink keys to shrink the obfei I 
down. 

Load another object into the other work 
shelf, Then select a fats on that object, and a 
face on the previous object. With two facet 



The objects are In a very speoilic for- 
mat, and each object is in (act a col- 
lection of a number of files, not just 
one. If you intend moving objects 
around, you will have to sh lit all Ihe 
components of the object, and nol 
lust Ihe first one you come to. 




selected, t\kk on ihe Glue button, and the 
two objects are automatically glued 
together. 

If the blocks look funny when you do 
this it may be that the wrong block is being 
printed first. Use the Precedence/Culling 
button to correct this. 

Then you can apply surface detail - pat- 
terns in bur COVDUTS which you can map to 
the selected face of the object This is done 
by d rawing lines on a grid, which are then 
filled before they are attached to the fai e oi 
the object. 

You select a face, and then open the 
Surface Detail tools. You draw on the grid 
and the detail comes out on the shape, the 
.mes being filled. The shapes you can do 
with this utility are fairly elementary, but 
it's surprising how little the brain needs in 
the way of clues to make a 3D shape look 
right. 

lust a door on the side of a ear shape or a 
window in a house can make the difference 
between a few shapes and some recugnis- 
able objects.

Motorola Invaders 2 



Pathfinder PD 

We in already had variants of Alien Breed and Bomb Jack this 
month and now with Motorola Invaders 2 lor the A1 200 only, we 
step back in time to the very creation of the arcade game itself - 
Space Invaders. 

Thai game happened 1o revolutionise the entertainment and 
leisure induslry as we know it. Ml 2 is a Irtle which dangerously 
veers towards, thai vague idea of a cult classic taking elements 
Irom Gataxians and Space Invaders and using them in a stylistic 
and bold way 

The first thing I noticed when I booted up ts erne of the longest 
and clafliresl samples I've heard trarn an Amiga. If you re a 
Metaltica (an, then the delight is doubled as the thrash group 
hammer out the chords. 

The actual gameplay is a case of shooting up the viruses Irv- 
ing inside your computer. They Dome in various formations from 
massive aowds of the. blighters to Ihe organised ranks as seen 
in Space Invaders 

When shot, l he diseased bytes don't blow up, they drop to the 
ground like dead (lies and if they hit you on the way down, a Me 
15 tost This can make (he program quite difficult to play and 



requires careful shooting and some tactical manoeuvring. 

Motorola 2 has eighl levels and lour "differ ng playing styles" 
and is worth a look if only to see something as old as the hills 
done with style, instant appeal and panache.

away from the xenomorphs and en 
dying horribly. 

A50C owners will have to put up 
the occasional juddery scrolling but Al 
owners need not worry, 

As it stands. Alien Hash is quite a 
game and does have that "one more 
feel - a good reason to take a Id •

Bomb Jacky 

1 remember in the old days going dour 
thf software shop in Macclesfield, buj * 
Bomb Jack on my Spectrum and playi 
the I il tie bugger to death. 

As you've guessed even with the i 
ning use at a V on the end of the na 
this is a souped-up, multi-scr 
scrolling, power-up toting version Df I 
arcade classic. 

The scenario hasn'l changed 
and run your way through each k-vel 
letting all the bombs before thei? bm • 
out and blow you to kingdom come, 

Enemies are in ample supply and i 
in various guises ranging from mi.hU 
melons to mutated pacmen. Some i 
follow a set path while Others consta 
chose and annoy the hell out of you. 

The graphics are fun if a little :

this case, the computer), 

For the gambling fanatics with no 

money among us, bets can be laid through 
the slakes columns. It's a touch unwieldy 
but practice makes perfect I he game is 
presented clearly and is easy to use so if 
you like the card game, you'll love the 
computer version. 

Doody 

Make no mistake - Doodv is i cutesy 
game; a saccharin-soaked, cuddly for the 

kiddies' kiuda titlt- st-t in .1 inkf-and-pill- 

ridden sewer system, 

The action centres around a single 
icreen made up of platforms, the story 
being that you (and an optional second 
player) have fallen down into the system 
and must work your way up through 32 
levels to escape, destroying ail who stand 
in the wiy, 

Your orange blob of a character starts at 
the bottom of the screen while the enemy 
pour nut or the pipes at the top. These are 
usually turtles with green shells to begin 
with and in later levels, the program 
almost nts new standards in environmen- 
tal simulators with the introduction of 
penguins. 

By mo\ mi', Doody underneath ihf plat- 
form that the turtle is walking along, it is 
possible to head -butt the floor and knock 
iiiir arnphihi.ni friend off his feet. Nt'it, it's 
a mad dash to get up onto the platform to 
kick him off into oblivion, 

If left too long, thp turtle will get up, 
change its colour and move even faster, To 
make lite easier, then; is a POW block at 
tin- bottom of the screen - hit it and ail the 
creatures fall off their feet automatically 
and no, it's not possible to keep doing it 
over and over again; the player can end) 
use it a certain amount of times. 




tl you jf li 
down f d Ihr 

lodaf... 



Graphically, the game looks a little basic 
but there me nice touches with the anima- 
tion - it vou leave your character too long, 
he yawns and goes to sleep, The turtles, 
when changing colour, put on the new 
one as if it were a jacket, These and others 
add a real feel ui priik'ssionalism 10 Ihe 
title. 

A1200 owners will have to look out for 
siriHTi corruption if they have a hard 
drive because it appears to interfere with 
the game coding in some way. The pro- 
gram is still playable though but it's a bit 
of a shame this can't rectified in some 
way, 

Doody is a cracking game which has 



that Bubble Bobble /Rainbow Islands feel 
to it, making (his title the most absorbing 
of all foe* on th* dak, 



Atoms 

I've seen this kind Lit game on a couple of 

occasions and it has be said that this ver- 
sion is the slickest of the lot in terms nl 
presentation, 

The basic concept Is this ■ each player 
(two to four} places a. coloured atom each 
turn on the board which is basically a 
lar^c grid. It's possible to plaee stoma in 



Mr Men Olympics 1993 



Virus Free Software 

Everyone knows Ihe Mr Men - Mr Tickle. 
Mr Happy, Mr Messy and Miss, .Single 
Parent They played a part in most child- 
hoods alter the 60s. and Unity, the peo- 
ple behind this release, have obviously 
decided lhat they didn't want to squander 
such great material 

So they've produced a children 5 
game lhai plays and looks like a com- 
mercial piece of saltware. 

The actual game centres round live 
different sporting events - the 100 
metres, weight lifting, the hammer, pa*e 
vault and javelin throwing, Like all sports 




Mr NfK' h wwfn? up tfH tm* 
at Mr tblnny prtpafts htmmlf Id 
bi' taimLtrcd tnfa orbtl 



sims, the majority of these evenls are 
performed by waggling Ihe joystick 
frantically 10 gam spaed or strength 
and (hen hitting the Fire button ai the 
fight moment to succeed. 

The javelin, tor inslance, involves 
speeding Mr Tickle up via Ihe Joystick 
and when he reaches the ihrow line, 
hitting the Fire bullon 

It doesn't end tnere - Ihe javelin in 
question is actually Mr Skinny who 
flies through the air and the player 
needs 10 help him further by flapping 
tha characters arms wW 
controller 

All the levels with ihe exception ol 
the hammer throwing section work 
well on 3 simplistic level and are ideal 
for young children, 

More events would have been 
better but the presentation, ease of 
use and every character looking 
like it's been lifted of! the page ol 
the Roger Hargreaves classics, 
makes this tille inlo something a little 
special 

II you want your young six-year-old 
kids to play something a iiirta diflerenl 
from Ihe usual boat- ern-up games 
then slip (his into the disk drive - 
they're sure to have a good time

PD and SHAREWARE 



Rags to Riches 

Pathfinder PD 

M Monopoly is your game then Kags to Riches la the ideal elec- 
tronic companion, [fa an original bfurd ^jme designed and 
produced on computer so you never have to worry about los- 
ing any of the pieces. 

The basic idea is to make as many hotels as possible and 
imass large amounts of wedge- This is not a simply as it 
sounds - there are only a certain amount available to be built 
in certain locations so the players (two to four) havp to rush to 
ou tdo each other. 

On the path to successful building, plans, planning 
approval, vkictricity, plumbing brickwork and other factors 
have to be bought, 

There are plenty of variables such as windfalls and gam- 
bling, and the whole package works well, but unfortunately 1 . 
couldn't help feeling that everything was just too random 
and not enough skill based. Having said that though, if 
you're a board game nut then this could be just up your 
Park Lane.

the squares together, making them 
unstable. 

Once a certain number of atoms are 
grouped together, they efcplode across 
the board, changing everything that gets 
in the way to their colour- 
There are various rules affecting the 
gameplay such as chain reactions caused 
by other players' atoms reacting off 
yours. This can lead to situations where 
you think the game is in the bag bul the 
opposition's single atom is in an ideal 
spot to completely wipe out all your 
colours, 

A one-on-one against the computer 
option would have given the game more 
levity but as it stands, it's a good laugh 
especially with four people involved. 

Boor Intro Construction Set 

When the magazine tirsts boots in, the 
user is presented with an intro screen 
containing information inside coloured 
■•hip;. 

BICS is the program that does this and 
now the same can be done to a disk of 
your choice, By selecting the constructioci 
set, the user is presented with a screen 
where it is possible to enter test and the

From (here, install on a disk and when 
used nest, it will flash up the desired text- 
This useful for sending messages and 
instructions to friends on disk or simply 
to make the front end of a game look 
more attractive to the eye. 

The only downer is the lack of hard 
disk installation but as the Boot Intro 
Construction Set stands, it's a effective 
piece of software.

If you're relatively new to the Amiga, 
the importance of the Video Toaster 
and its accompanying suite of soft- 
'.■.. .iif can't be overstated. In short, the 
Video Toaster is the only thing that's kepi 
the Amiga alive in the LIS for yean, 

Even nn m- mum ihar. thi? prospm i !■' .1 
third party peripheral keeping a computer 
allti.it n) tiic tact that the software hmdled 
with the Toaster is the only thirty that's. 
kept the card itself from a pedal bin 
already full of long forgotten third-party 
peripherals, 

If you managed to follow ,inv <it the 
above the upshot is that without 
Lightwave Ihe Amiga would probably 
have been crushed underfoot by the 
relentless, onslaught of IBM in the 
American market long ago. 

MOT ALONE 

Although Lightwave is not alone when 
it comes to Toaster software, it's widely 
regarded as the most important element ol 
the entire hard ware /soft ware combi- 
nation- 
Due to the Toaster's strictly composite* 
only output, the card itself 
has been rather supersed ed 
over recent years by dedi- 
cated broadcast systems 
when it comes to TV and 
satellite - although it 
i*. still the workhorse 
behind countless L'S 
cable stations providing 
ji.ir.uii'i generation, dig- 
ital video effects and or 
course Lightwave images 
and animation. 

Although the Toaster itself is no longer 
considered sufficient for broadcast appli- 
cations Lightwave still provides rendering 
quality on a par with anything on the 
market, 

A perfect illustration of this can be teen 
gracing our screens right now in the form 
of Babvlon 5 and Sea Quest DSV both of 
which make extensive use of Lightwave's 
incredible modelling power. 

To put things into perspective 
Lightwave has proved so popular with 
professional broadcasters in the Slates that 



complete toaster systems have been 
bought purely .is .1 means of accessing the 
polential of the package - as a result the 
Toaster itsalf probably qualifies as the 
world's most expensive dongle. 

Although this may sound unbelievable 
it's worth bearing in mind the cost of 
alternative systems like I he Silicon 
Graphics Indigo workstations. Although 

Paul Austin 
reveals another 

exclusive as 
LightRave finally 
brings arguably 

the Amiga's 
greatest ever ray 
tracer to Europe 



truly impressive, the machines can cost up 
to £35jQO0 plus another G40XKW for the 

associated ray tracing and animation soft- 
ware - add an optional £2,000 a year for 
hv':i -..ippurt and upgrades and you'll see 
why Lightwave remains so popular. 

With the extra appeal of the software 
over its accompanying hardware, the 
question has to be: Why not buy a stand- 
alone version of Lightwave and leave IK- 
Toaster for those who specifically want its 
additional multimedia abilities. 

Unfortunately as you've probably 
guessed the connection belween the 
Toaster and Lightwave isn't simply a mat- 
ter of loyalty. In fact lightwave minus the 
Toaster equals no Lightwave whatsoever - .. - 

As a consequence that's why the ulti- 
mate in Amiga ray tracing has never 
appeared in Europe. Thanks to the 
enforced symbiosis it has remained 
strictly on the wrong side of the ptmd. 

Due 1 1 • thi I'.isie design of Lightwave it 
insists on the presence of a Toaster - 
which is not only expensive but also 
impossible to use in a PAL environment 
up until recently, Why the authors of 



Lightwave never released the package M 
other boards is probably a matter of coa. 
tactual obligation rather than indifferem 
but whatever the reason the end resal 
remains the same. 

What Europe needed was some wij - 
duping Lightwave into believing a Team 
was on-board, when in. fact it u..- 
Rnler LightRave, the dongle that does ta 
impossible and brings Lightwave to tk 
PAL Amiga without burning up exh 
cash on the somewhat mediocre an 
expensive talents of the PAL Toaster. 

GRATIFYING 

Considering the- asking price associati 
with the LightRave and Lightw.iw tn- 
nation it's gratifying to know there's ma 
to it than just plugging the dongle unto ll 
st'ii.il port. 

Along with the aforementioned plas) 
accessory - which for some bizarre reasi 
smells of soap - you also receive a flcpa 
which contains the LightRave control sol 
ware, an element which must be resida

Depending on your particular set-up 

can configure Lightwave's preview 

at medium of your choice, although 

optimum speed it's also possible to 

ego the preview entirely in order tn 

,i little more rendering time. 
If the assorted graphic cards and 
\nuga modes are not enough LightRaVe 
alio offers the option to render direct to 
magel * image processing soft- 
»ire, This has. two advantages, Firstly 
nu can lake advantage of any additional 



display devices 
supported either now or 
in the future by the software. 

In addition the option aims allows post- 
processing of the 3D images even before 
the file is sa *«i lo disk. On the down-side,, 
running Lightwave and ImageFX simulta- 
neously will require a huge amount of free 
RAM which will no doubt negate its use 
for the vast marority. 

In addition to simply slapping graphics 
onto the chosen device., the LighiRave 
software also provides time-out control 
for tlw Static imagi; preview 1 . Bettn atil] M i 
even possible to play back animation ren- 
dered directly from "LightRave _ a feature 
only previously available through the 
Toaster 4000 hardware. 

At the moment animS is the only antm 
format available but others at promised 
for the future. The animation itself can 



appear as either Ham or HamS display or 
alternatively as a DCTV 3 or 4 bitplane 
image /anim, 

With such a big build up, it's only fair 
to offer <it least a whistle stop tour of what 
alt the fuss is about, However as you can 
probably guess, Lightwave is simply too 
big a package to cover in just a couple of 
pages. 

In addition AC - unlike certain maga- 
zines - has a tradition of not only actual 
having a product before reviewing it, but 
also thoroughly testing it prior to offering 
a so-called exclusive, 

With this; in mind coverage of 
Lightwave will be carried onto next 
month in the form of a full and in-depth 



Unique spectacular, and lei up in a 
matter nf n for mfnulri 



look at the package. For 

now, however, we'll go 

on a brief guided tour 

and spotlight what 

makes the package 

so special. 

Aside from the 
impressive fea- 
tures list which 
we'll look at in a 
moment one of the 
most notable aspects 
of the Lightwave and 
LightRave combination 
has to be the price tag which 
when both elements are com- 
bined add up to a rather terrifying 
amount. Obvlouslv without proper test- 
ing it's inappropriate to talk about value 
Mr money - you'll have to wait for next 
month for that. However the price tag 
does at beast point to the market the new 
duet will be targeting. 




In fact, even to install Lighters and 
more importantly Lightwave you will 
either need to be very serious about your 
modelling and animation or have an 
almost unbelievable excess of disposable 
cash. 

According to the LightRave manual the 
software and dongle require the complete 
installation of the entire Toaster software 
collection. OK, not an unreasonable 
request - until you realise that the collec- 
tion comes on 45 disks which in total 
require 1 10Mb of storage spaee. 

If you're unfortunate enough to be 
installing on an A40CN) all 46 disks are 
required where as only a measly 29 are 
essential for non-AGA machines:. 

Due to the rather annoying and archaic 
design of the Toaster installer you're ™Ly 
given the option to install all or nothing, a 
factor which Ls made even more infuriat- 
ing when you realise that LightRave, 



Amiga Computing Christmas 1993

Lightwave and Modeler total to less than 

1Mb. In fact even if all the support files, 
objects and essential fonts an copied over 

you still only need about 7Mb of hard disk 
span. 

Over the next few weeks I'll try to 
unearth .1 more cost-effective method ul 
Installation by perhaps aborting installa- 
tion after tin' csitnti.il Lightwave elements 
liine been added, 

Unfortunately even if it is possible to 
abort the install prematurely the installer 
interrogates your system before starting- 
up ,mJ iv ill ri'luM. 1 Lu install on anything 
I r*.- than an 80Mb hard di^k. 

Even if the correct size of disk is located 
■. i hi will he instructed to delete a predeter- 
mined number of files to make up rrhf 
shortfall. As a result at the moment the 
only option is tn back-up your entire hard 
disk, install the software, delete the neoes- 
siry Toaater software and re-install you 
system. 

In addition to the potential problem <>t 
acquiring the extra hard disk space the 
authors and creators oi the LightRave 
dongle : 1 - • -- ■ - also officially .stated - again 
via the manual - thai teeh support and 
imminent free upgrades to the LightRave 
driver software will only be available to 
those who can prove ownership of ,1 
l ■ aster. 



In order to do this the registration card 
has an area marked Video Toaster serial 
number. If you do not supply the mimbt'T 
you als<» won'l receive information on 
upgrades to LightRave d<»ngle - H In h 
may occur due to upgrades to Lightwave 
or the tii.i-.tiT itse 1 

Although this isn't the kind of news the 
European buying public are looking for 
it's probably a vain attempt on the part of 
LightRave's developers to appease the 
;-- 1 -_ -. . I god New'l'ek - who for obvious rea- 
sons won't b.e too pleaie\i .it the prospect 
of losing their prize milk-cow to an 
Interloper 

In iact, so keen are Warm and Fuzzy 

Logic to avoid offence that one of the pri- 

M.ii ■.. idling points at LightRave is to offer 



additional freedom to existing TpUtei 

T- 1-, 

This indeed is twe of the benefits ol the 
LightRave system, however telling a cus- 
tomer that he mt she can't have tech sup- 
port and upgrades lor something you've 
sold them simply because they don't own 
the wry thing you've allowed them to 
avoid buying is the ultimate in hypocrisy. 

And don't think the fault lies with 
Warm and Fuzzy Logic - it doesn't, The 
cause of all this confusion falls squarely at 
the feet of NewTek who through outright 

.: have forced would-be 
Lightwave users to such 
bizarre lengths. 

Given the fact that 
NewTek must have 
made an ab-solute 
mint on theTeastei bi 
recent years, why not 
release Lightwave - 
under licence - fot n^e 
(villi other boards? That 
way they still receive a 
handsome royalty and we the 
underprivileged Europeans 
would finally get the software we want 
- no strings attached . 

Although the woti l ightwave gives 

the impression of a single entity the pack- 

• in i.kt split into two distinct parts, 

namely Layout and Modeler - Uncle 

Sam'* spelling, no) ours. 

On entering the software von arrive at 
the layout screen complete with its 
mandatory camera and Caligari style 
Cartesian plane, providing 6b 
feeling of perspective. 

Again Caligari-esque double button 
mouse controls allow the viewer to zoom 
in and o ri e n tate ilu display, however this 
basic perspective view is only the begin- 
ning of the program's truly excellent 
interface. 

A.s you can no doubt see from the 
screenshots, buttons are also available for 
the usual X,Y and Z views, but better still 
you can also view the scene from the cam- 
era's point of view or that of any lights 
which may have been add to the scene. 

The beauty of the last two options is 
only realty revealed when the chosen view 
is combined with the programs edit

Options. Again you'll see that the various 
View buttons are repeated in the edit sec- 
tion with the addition of bones and 
objects. 

As a result you can fur example select 
the •- iew pninl of a light and also select the 
same light as the element to be edited. As 
a consequence, when you now orientate 
your new view the object mimics the 
chances in real-time allowing incredibly 
easy and accurate adjustment and align- 
ment of the various elements. 

If you're happy with the changes you 
simply dfck Sfl CfWte key and the alter- 
ations are recorded. Each element h.i^ its 
own set of keys which during animation 
are tweened automatically by live software 
using splines. 

And joy of joys, each object also has its 
own motion graph to control speed along 
its individual path. In a ratht-r dramatic 
and pleasant variation from the norm, 
characterisation of the various element', 
within a scene are handled during scene 
development, and as a result there's no 
need to jump between modeller and lay- 
Out to adjust text ure maps, backdrops and 
soon, 

Moving on to the layout screen. Where 
tfotl're confronted with an imagine/Real 
Classic-style tri or quad view depending 
on your particular preference. In a slight 
break from tradition, the various edit con- 
trols on the left oi the screen evolve 
according to choice of mode selected at 
the top. 

As a result there'te no tedious treks 
through pull-down menus to find the 
appropriate feature and perhaps more 
importantly screen refresh is kept to an 
absolute minimum, 

When it comes to model design and 
handling, the format is very similar to 



bod I 



Imagine/ Real Classic with the only map 
exception being the ability to usr 
layers each of which can hold 
objects. 

These layers can then be rie^ 
exchanged to update the screen 
m-.v object ,iiul nmre importantly 
can interact to perform v annus merge i 
Boolean operations with one objeel I 
used as a cutting tool on anolin 
Although not essential, the optional <j^A 
view has a particularly nice touch in a 
form of a fourth perspective view. 

Unlike Imagine you're not forced u 
use sliders, to orientate the fourth windoi 
- in fact you can grab the object , 
manipulate the model in real-time, arc 1 
that's nut enough you can even choose] 
have the object constantly swivel rrofl 
to n.;,-ht to enhance the 3D effect, 

As for tools and edit options, the an 
able selection is nothing short of brea»- 
taking with seemingly everything !.-a 
Imagine 3.0 promise and Seemingly j 
th.it KeaBD v2 provides at present - wa 
the only pusiible exceptions being co& 
sion detection and gravitational ef i> . 

Although a rather sweeping statement 
considering my limited exposure to *?» 
package it only proves the infectioaal 
enthusiasm thai Lightwave Hem-rate* 

MASSIVE 

It's by no means an accident tt 
Lightwave has become massive rij 
across the US and beyond. Although | 
era! years ol raj tracing experience a 
help, I've hardly e^er needed to re-, 
the manual for advice - even wheat 
exploring features that are totally nen | 
me 

During Amiga reMi-A ■.. the phra< 
intuitive is used with gay abandon 
sometimes without cause. In the cai 
Lightwave 3.0 the word couldn't be 
at home. Nine times out of ten using t 
new feature is simply a matter of pi 
the most obvious approach - and 
times out of ten you'll be right. 

Like many Amiga enthusiasts 1 
become thoroughly skk of the sycopha*-) 
tic coverage that the Toaster ar.s 
Lightwave have received over the ye 
many European magazines - given 
fact that none of them have ever ev« 
seen it In action. 

However after ontv a brief exposure 1 
this package I'm already hooked. I'm 
next month for the in-depth review, B 
then my initial rush of enthusiasm -\ 
have worn off and we'll reveal if all of d 
expense and hassle is worth 
the effort.

ithough the Jpeg file format has 

brought unrivalled image- oom- 

firession to the hard pressed 

it's largely remained the domain of 

swer u*era with the financial muscle to 

scrd expensive Jpeg compatible software 

tA as ADPro, ImageFX and JmageMister. 

tht! arrival oi the AGA chipyet the 

between space and quality did 

jprove, however ever with thb> assistance 

••• interlaced Hamft's some uuality is 

: i sacrificed for a space saving of roughly 

) per cent over the average IFF 24. 

.1 Jdiiion to expense associated with 
leg, accessibility was and still remains a 
■oblem with the vast merits oefy except- 
i 2 4-bit data in an IFF form. 
Once again the n«d for expensive image 
KXtssing software is reaffirmed with its 
rvitable demands on system resources and 
■e - as each Jpep is forced through the 
jmetimes lengthy processing procedure 
tty time an image was stored or 
azompressed. 

Fhankfully Pegger should finally pui 
s(h the financial and time constraints asso* 
ated with Jpeg to the sword, thanks to a 
rt;ree <rf automation which is unsurpte-x''! 
f any other Amiga graphic* utility. 

I ike tin 1 majority of recent retell 
lorkbench 2.0 or above is an essential for 
none planning to use fegger In addition 
I least 2Mb of RAM are required, along 
ith a hard disk 

The ne«t for Workbench 1 is soon ippar- 
nt on boot-up as the program leaps into 
:tion with three Appleonji offering com- 
rcsolon, decompression and the essential 



*ini>op. bor those unfamiliar with the Icon 
Appkon it pimply means that the program 
waits in the background while a small win- 
dow remains on the Workbench screen 
ready to be double elkkixl into life or fire up 
auiomaticaliy as files are Jroppii over the 
icon. 

Unfortunately tht version on test did 
show the odd bug when it came to dumping 
files directly onto the icon, however a bug 
fix is promised prior to shipping in the UK. 

Whether you prefer to double click or

In the case of both compression and

In fact, Replace will even delete the origi-

Lost Christmas one of (he many toys to take the 
British public by jtorm were the Micro Machines. 
Thrs range of miniature vehicles we billet! as 
detailed modds of lha genuine article yst smoll 
enough to fit on your little finger. 

These dory? where there's any scope to market 
a prooW further, you can be* your koooro dolltv 
thai ihe companies responsible will. Guess whot, 
this is precisely what happened wilh the Micro 
rungs. 

They first appeared wilh jubilant applause on 
formats /ike the Sega Mega Drive. Now after a 
long wait MM has decided to materialise on the 
Amiga, 

Being a product originally designs! for femrats 
lib ihe Mage Drive, Micro has a very console style 
to it. When you first glance at ir, Micro Machwies 
tools fairfy poor in miction to what the Amiga is 
capable of. 

However, just because the grophics are of a 
fairity simple nature i( doesn't mean la say that me 
game Ejnfl highly playable. This is definitely die 
cast wjth this life, The iprifel are smaN and the 
sound doesn't stretch the Amiga at all, hvl it is 
damn playable. 

Micro Machine* is. one of those gomes that 
really doeu'l have much of a plot or much back- 
ground; te iheme is very simple. 

So having hi write about il is quite rough. I 
mean I tauW jum up (he entire scenario in about 
five words, If* a racing gome lecturing the Micro 



It's been a storming success on just about 

every console format and now it's making 

its racing debut on an Amiga near you 



Machine! (well OK. so if wos eight words]. Bui I 
can't do this because it would be a very bfani 
page and yours truly would be back in the que* 
wilh the other millions! 

A I right, there is sfighlfy mora to it than hos 
been mentioned thus far, so withoul any further 
digression lefs spit il out. 

Micro Machines puts you in the fifty driving sect 
■of a wkfe variety of different miniature vehicles. 
These vory from power heals ihrough to combat 
Ionics, formula One Grand Pru cars and 
helicopteri. 

Now stroighp away you're probably jumping to 
the some conclusion most da, that this is nothing 
new; o rate around the old tarmac in cots ord 
booh viewed from rf» top, 

EM this is where you're wrong because the 
main novelty aspect to Micro Machinei are ihe 
frocks. Rather thon your lyptcd road scenario, the 
courses are sel over such things as breakfast 
tables, bothlubs, workbenches and porches. 

Sounds odd hul 11 works a treat. It's redly very 
entertaining having to guide your dune buggy 
around a Iradk composed Or Rice Krispies, avoid- 
ing ihe bean and trying your hardest not to skid 
off the table cloth into oblivion. In total there are 
27 frocks rW they're a/, made up of as silly things 
os the above. 
As for as who you race ogams! an +>? sa cared

Campaign II heralds a new generation of War 
Simulations with more depth than ever before 
and fabulous real-time 30 action. 

The depth to Campaign II is provided by the all 
new strategy. Expert Military consultant, Wilf 
Owen, from recent conflicts has brought his 
knowledge to bear on computer gaming with an 
end result that looks and feels more realistic 
than ever before. All aspects involved in the 
running of an army have been considered, so 
that now you can place yourself in command of 
either side, at any level in the chain of 
command. Over 130 templates of the most 
significant military forces from 56 different 
nations of the last 50 years have been 
included to gain an Insight into real conflicts 
such as Korea, Vietnam and Operation 
Desert Storm.

wire-guided missiles, rockets, homing 
missiles, and machine-guns supported 
by laser rangefinders to tracer range*

Since Space Hutk drifted ita way into the 
Govner igtoo pfj grim mis lima of year up 
north], it's received o bit amount of altan- 
lien. 
As we crouched around me lire (he orbe* night 
Cruising ladies, I drifted into a slumber and 
dreamed we. were oil space marines. .. 

There we were, a lethal savad of terminators 
aboard the Space Hulk, our mission to destroy the

Our mission brisling comnienceo,, wm a

"After you've torrid these boxes over to me

minate the dreaded enemy.'' 

BRIEFING 

Siding mare, quaking in my oversized Burtons 
ipocesuit, my expression drooped further as our 
squad leader conlirwrtd his briefing. 

* 'Right, we've gol no choice, it's our job, 
Anyone who complains I'll personally lake oui to 
the fighting tree and beat seven shades out of 
idem, w no whinging, W» gel on with il' Any 
comment" 

From Ihe corner of the room a limid hond slow- 
ly broke ihe line o( stooped heads. It was technical 
officer Colon, trembling as he spoke. 

'1 mink il would be a apd idea if we were oil o 
bit quieter * he stuttered, odjusting his hWescenl 
shoulder band. 

Before anyone could comment he was floored.

I don't recall how long we lumped parcels into

impossible quantity to measure, everything became 
trarolucenl and before I knew it we were assem- 
bled at the main enhance ft, the Hulk.

As Biff (who's by far me youngesS) and myself 
took our places in line, we exchanged a nervous 
glance and waited. 

DARK RECESSES 

The silence was abruptly broken by the duled 
bark of Ste-Vee

I swallowed hard and nervously cocked ifo

shaking. Seeing the fright in our petrified eyes the 
others laughed, and taunted us os we switched to

Amid the noise of me intercom abuse, the oth-

Stardust 



Do you remember the eody days of com- 
puter games? Do yau rsrnarrfcer a partk- 
ubr wire-framed arcade- cum-pub classic, 
Asteroids? 

There won't be many who haven't seen same or 
other version of this landmark in the annals of soft- 
ware history. 1 We mid memories of entering my 
Iced tavern in an altempl la do botifc with wirs' 
framed UFOs and the cvllines gi large chunks of 
r«k, 

This w» no mean feet as to play my favourite 
stand-alone piece ol high technology, I hod to get 
pass ta disconcerting eyes of the landlord. 

The length* to which this, reviewer went to OS 
young mo« just to satiate his desire for electronic 
maryhem were quite disturbing. 

fVepootion would begin some fee days before 
my jhkky coinage got anvwfiere near the sloi of he 
machine. The golden rule was to appear mature; 
ihis was perfected by exercising a tight regime of 
not shaving. 

No matter how much the scratching ond itching 
persisted, shaving must be avoided. With this m 
mind, it was imperative to avoid the cat who would 
inevitably lick mv bum-Huff off 

FVeporolion also involved stealing Dad's after- 
shave, saving school dinner money lexpenset) end 
giving my boyish anatomy as much room os po&si - 
Be to keep my voice k tow as wos feasibly achiev- 
able - tight pants were definitely a no no. 

Before all ihe plannii\g felt in place, the big 
night would be upon me. Approodhing the- bar sur- 
reptitiously, with oil the swagger and poise of some- 
one 01 least 1 fl, I would order my pint of insipid bit- 
ter, then disappear off to the arcade machine, not 
even touch ihe beer and regress to the mental age of 
a four-year-old, blasting to my heorl's content. 

But that was then and this is now, and the indus- 
try hos coma a long way. However, il seems lhal ihe 
Amiga is about to be pushed thai little bit (urlher by 
Finnish programmer s Eloodstouse. 

ftiblished ureter (he Daze umbrella, Stardust is a 
spectacular version of the old Asteroids heme, The 
basic object is to dear he screen of asteroids ana 
enemies white collecting oil the bonuses and 
power-ups, 

While it's o very simple game in essence, hm is 
a liny sub-plot, An evil professor has taken H upon 
himself to destroy the galaxy in its entirety 
and kidnap the beautiW princess Voi, 

To this end he has cunningly dis- 
guised his tap agents as meteors whkh 
fie' s dispatched to go on the rampage. 

You play ihe do-gooding chisel- 
chinned hero in your big manly pointy space ship, 
whose tosk it is to blow everything to pieces. 

OK, so there's the plot which redly is purely inci 



4SK ' r A- 




u < 



tt you're wondering ntivn' In* 
spaceship is, il'* under that grey 
blob whkh acts as your stieild 




Let's take a stroll down 
memory lane and 
look at this Swedish 
Asteroids clone which 
has received a 
complete lick of 
90s paint 




dental; the main thing 
\ r e. Bocdi« (at we ihall now call 

them) hove been screaming about is that Stardust 
pushes ihe Amiga through new boundaries in 
graphical capabilities. 

They've employed a ray tracing technique as 




Having cofiqutred the first sit stages you lace the end -of- level guardian 



yet unknown in the world of home compt- 
ers. Stardust also uses 32 colours in Ihe overscan 
mode. The programme has taken o full year to 
complete and much of its hi-lech development is 
down to Blocdhoose's chief programmer. He was 
formally responsible for ihe development of Real 
3D, possibly the best ray tracing packages avail- 
able on the Amiga. 

Plerywtse, -there are dozens d AsterOfds-loclo- 
like levels to rjo battle in After the successlwl clear- 
ance of each planet, you play a sub-gome as you 
trowel lo your next destination 

This is one of the mail impressive routines ever 
to run on the- Amiga and really does push its cir- 
cuits to he limit. 

s o feet rolling, mego- scrolling shoot- 'em-uo 
blitz which left all of vs completely ga-ga. Realty 
the screemhefb, don' I do this aspect of Stardust any 
justice - ploying is befteving. 

The other great thing is thot it comes at ihe bar- 
gain price of £14.99, though it's nol a budget title 
by any means. 

Stardust Is going to gp down as ihe definitive 
Asteroid done (or the Amiga, It's visually briBiani, 
sounds great and plays superbly 

The idea's a i-mpie one. hut works very effec- 
tively and At ihis bargain price, Stardust is unmiss- 
able. Now, you f sally can show off to all your 
motes, who own consoles.,,

Gambol Air Patrol « rtow in ihe shops, w wa 
felt ii woi onV fair to rereview it for new renders 
and those wna might hove missed il firsl lima 
around. 

The game is a High! jimutatwn ocairately based 
around the f 1 & Tomcat and ihe F' 18 Hornet, end 
to top it oil off it's sat in ihe lime of the Gull War 

the primary obfectwe is the exclusion of enemy

Whichever you decide upon you con |

Once you've mastered the flying techriiqfiajj

As yov enter ihe cockpit, you see ■» <

Before yov start ihe Guif war campaign you

Find a "perfect* game. I could drone on and on 
for hours about Combat Air Patrol, especicily as 
I'm not normally the type of person to really be 
impressed by this sort of game, bul suffice to soy 
that Combat Air Patrol is a bit special, and flight

if yaw had to name your top ten Cutesy plal- 
Formers, I can bet ihel ycVd scrihJble alown 
Chu-clt Rett as one of your favourites. 
Chutk Rock, which was creoied by Core 
Design, was piaylul romp through the

plcrying cheesy grin after cheesy grin at the slap-

Mr Rock prated lo be big seller fo» Cor*

next garnE to do tbc same. Wonder Dog is a con- 
VBrsion from a cerloin console machine colled the 
Mega CD (hence- the noma!), bul don't Id that put 
you off! 

This the poinl of the review where we Kim into

vicious dog troopers or sweeping!, ochiaving total 
gglocfx domination m their wake. 

As lfre enemy approaches me tranquil planet 
K?, a young pvp is hasliSy injected with me top 
secret "wonder'' serum and launched into space in 
bone capsule. 

Cnoshirvg to earth light years later, Wonder 
Dog must malvre and develop his filing skills by 
completing the seven perilous levels, gaining the 
required' combat stills and defecting adversaries 
in order to return and lava his planet from 
onihilglion. 

Thai concludes Gamer focfanoty for today, 
but II we'll be bock next week with tfie second port 
1a the story, to be read by top TV fgnny man and 
ggme show host Lei Dennis... 

The action starts, at Bunny Hop Meadow. The 
meodow is toll of green pastures, dear skies and 



crystal blue waters and ^m is 
where Wonder Dog must begin 
his. basic training. On this brat 
level our doggy chum is 
pbgued by all manner of dan 
gsro*i5 creatares. FluHy bvn- 
nies, swooping duefct, jpiky 
hedgehogs and wily foxes are 
all out ta stop him in his. prime. 

TTie pup with (he Happy ears 
musl collect as many of the 
bonuses and power-ups as 
passible in order lo t 
increase his score and 
more imporlanily gain 
extra fiwes. 

On his "wo lliies", 
Wonder Dog will find 
various items mot he 
ton pick up. These 
include wings for ener- 
gy, jewels thai will give 
him axlra points, bones 
(if he collects 100 he 
will gelt on extra lifel, 
whinwiftd's for sborl- 
tern invincibility and 
smileys which reveal 1 
hidden platforms, 
that lead to secret 
bonus levels, 

Wonder Dog 
is a good lillle 
nWarrru-i . but is 

by no means a 
classic. The 
graphics are 
magnifkenl, 
wonderfully 
drawn and 
well animated.

The mid and end-of-level 
bosses are massive and ogam 
hove been sketched la perfee 
tion. 

The tunes are heavily 
loaded with a Irerrendous bit 
of bass playing ond ot no 
point da you fee! like ranch- 
ing for ihe volume switch to 
torn it down, Actool in-gonw 
sound effect ore very sparse, 
bud those which are in there 
ore more man sufficient. 
Wonder Dog is going 
to be one of those 
platformers that will 
either interest or infu- 
riate you. Some 
gamers might nol 
like the control 9ft 
tern because as times 
it's quite finicky ond 
you seem lo fall off 
platforms tfirou-gh 
no fault of your 
own. The consols 
bi me though were 
just Fine ana simply 
added 1o the chal- 
lenge of the game. 
Core's plat- 
former is extreme- 
ly hard and the 
later levels ore 
not for the foint- 
bearied or the 
beginner. 
Wonder Dog 
will tail you 
quite a while, 
but it is not fan- 



tastically different from crny other cutesy plat- 
former. 

So in the end, recommended for dedicated 
platform followers only, which is a shame because 
this is the best footing platformer I've ployed in 
ages 

Maybe with a bit of extra taught placed in t* 
gomepfoy department it could'ye appealed mow 
but ii lurni out nothing more than an average 
romp.

Ishar b regarded by many as one of the 
finest RPGs you can buy for the Amiga 
and wo* given generovs marks by various 
computer magazines. This Silmarils adven- 
ture is heavily influenced by Dungeon 
Master,, bur that isn't such o bad thing. 

The graphics are perhaps some of the 
finest seen in an RPG and really give the 
whole product a polished and professional 
Fed. 

The ad>an renlm ground the exploits 
of band of five brave and heroic odven- 
lurers as ihey Iry to kill a shaafy and pow- 
erful figure coHed Kr eogh. 

Krough, who has slowly grown rich 




and powerful and built a lemple |ihe Ishai 
on the Kingdom's borders, threatens ihe 
worn of Kendor.a. The world has decided 
thai you and your band of warriors should 
rightfully d<spose of him, 

Ishar - Legend of the Fortress boats 
over lOO r OM locations and hundreds of 
enemies and characters. The gome uses a 
flexible, uncomplicated and user Friendly 
control system which makes it sample and 
fun to use. 

This is a truly great adventure and one 
that any half-decent RPG fan could not cb 
without. Il may look and play like 
Dungeon Master, but Ishar Is terrific in Hs 



own right and is by far ihe best piece of 
software in this Dreamlands compllatic 
Ignore it at your peril!

ALFRED CHICKEN 




What can you sup, we've had them 
oil! Ninja ante bam another dimen- 
sion, frogs with superhero-caped 
powers, fish thai ore iecrei agents 
and now o bloody chicken, life in the ever-symegl 
ccmpuler industry gets stranger s-'JI. 

If'sgoftolha stage now where ihii reviewer is no 
lodger surprised when ihe nutter si's lead to him on 
the bin. asking if you've seen his camel, became 
you probably have. You juil nod and eaclaim "don- 
key*, wilboul 50 much os a shrug of the shoulders. 

Whoi some would describe os hallucinations 
ore- passed off as rwm'al day to dap occjr/enoei. A 
six foot squirrel? No worries. A crocodile in o morn- 
ing suit? Ooese'1 raise o second glance. But a chick- 
en coifed Alfred who enters a by-efecHon? 

Why is ii colled Alfred? To me rhor seems an 
odd flame tar a chicken. Never mind iSe fact thai 
this chicken had political aspirations - why Alfred* 
thickens erecdledClucky or thueky notAlf. 

Al ihe end of the cby however, if we spent J 
day pondering over sudh dilemmas riven nothing 
would get done and we'd oil end up with fried 
brains, so wilhcvl further ado lets gel into the plat 

The plot's pretty simple. TKe Meta-Chicken s 
hove whisked off with Billy egg and hij brothers. 
The sole purpose of their fiendish egg' napping h to 
oamy out their devilish cloning experiment 

FEATHERED FRIEND 

Olry OrtS HTiOn - we», chicken - can Jove iKe 
eggs, and that's Alf. As me only fecrthered friend 
with o btonk beak, Alf has. to battle through 1 1 lev- 
els of plofforming mayhem. 

As Alf pecks his way through the voriaus levels 
he is rewarded far ha bravery. For instance, releas- 
ing oil the balloons on each level lakes the fearhered 
one to Mr Pekle's space Idb whe^e he is given extra 
points, 

Also, if Alfred keeps a 
beady eye out ond col- 
lects a hundred of ihe 
many bonuses which 
lie around, fVV/ Pefcle 
rewards, him with an 
extra life. 

Not only does the landoori'd one 
have bowses to oid him, tare ore o 
series of devices to give him a hand. 
Springs, for example, propel Alf to a 
higher part of «Se stage - when he uses 





The Meka-ChKlun* %tm\ the 
eggs in UFO egg-sciuslve 





Why did the chicken 
cro» tfw rooww? To 
get at the balloon, 
silly! 

lh«e you could coll him a 

spring chicken jooh, fallen egg 

joke- Ed 

There are also burtons to peck which 

access other parts of the level, ond ke blocks. 

which oan be pecked for similar outcomes. 

Unfortunately for Alfred, there are also quite o 

selection or enemies within the employ of the 

Meka-thidkeoj ond most of ihem ore pretty 

nrjsly, These include underwater whales, a Jack-in- 



Wishin' I was ducky

Take control of the fowl on the prowl 

in Mindscape's latest cluck-tastic 

egg-stravaganza. Let's find out 

whether Alfie's a prime Bernard 

Matthews bird or a sparrow's ankle 




Alfred and the Vifalite sunflower decide Id turn Aff into a butternut chicken 



tbe-bomb who fines bombs out his mouth, o bitchy 
ladybird which oan'l be aMSaed ond o whole host of 
others. 

Looking on the plus side, Alfred bos a fair few 
power'-ups of his own to colled. Keep your eyts 
Open for a can a' worms whicfi gives Alf a spin- 
ning, monster 1 killing worm, and wrapped-up pre- 
sents which moke the breasted one invincible for o 
white. 

Of course we can't forget Alfie's own bionic 
beak whkh, when pwi into peak mode o* used in a 
nose-dive, is very effective ogainsl the foes. 

As phtformers go, Alfred Chicken ranks quite 
highly. He's definitely in the size-one-Frefl-ranoe- 
rrjnktng The graphics ore slick, well animated ond 
cartoony rather than cutesy. 

There's also a fair splattering of humour duck' 
ing around. For example, when Alfred meets on 
untimely roosting ai the hand of the Meka 
Chickens he explodes into feathers which then pro- 
coed It Ileal to "he ground. 

Alfred Chicken lias a great deal to offer gamers 
whether platform tons or not. It's for better than 
most of the overage chicken-run-of-the-mill siuff 



that gets pumped ot us daily. No-one con esm

s marketing strategies ■go,, Team \7 
seem to have the gaming industry 
mssed - take oil your old products and, 
. after Iktoning la the criticism of the 
reviewers and gaming publk, revamp tHe^ri and 
toss mem out at silly prices. 

If you examine the budget charts of rfcoenl 
mcrrfhs, you'll see a whole stream of Team 1 7 
product: an enhanced version of Project'!*., Alien 
Breed Special Edition and a remind Abs.as.iin have 
al sold in bodoods. 

They've also found tremendous success with 
their selection of recenl cheap priced ne* releases 
Iik« h 17 Challenge ond Qwak. Both of these prod- 
uch featured smart play at Jess than half (he price 
of other software companies. 

Till; is as neal a juncture as is necessary ho meet 
their latest product to receive me Team 1 7 energy 
injection. 

Cardinal was originally released ay Electronic 
Zoo some time ago, receiving rmsed reviews and 
featuring lime in the way of true game action. The 
bays from Wakefield saw potential and ha™ given 
it the treatment. 

Cordis** ii no nonsense blaster set strangely 
enough in space in the future . Taking on the rale of 
Pope (a hardened Han ido type tulro-jotk), you 
^^^__ blast off from the surface of the ptonet 
surface to take on the ntighl of on 
alien Reel. The scales are ripped 
heavily out of your favour, hut 
if anyone con perform mira- 
cles men it's you - or so ihe 
manual would hove you 
believe. 

After a short 
Intro sequence, il's ■ 
straight into the action. 
Cordtawt is an horiian- 
lal hi-dir«tional scroller 
that moves at a fair old rate of 



WM WW* WWVt ■■■£ ■■ P™ 
kHM to p*tfc Ml M? 




,no holds barred blasting as Team 1 7 
revamp to good effect 



which is quite use- 
ful., as many of the 
nasties require 
special hits or large 
sc aie damage. 

Along with the power 
gps. there'are also bonuses in 
the shape of extra time whkh prove very handy • 
time is extremely tight throughout, On the «to» 
Cardiaxx isn't a bad update into the nine** 
although if s not the best thing to come out of tV " 
itcihlc-. The graphics are presentable and p*- 
smooth, but they're never going to nuke yov4wi 
over yow monitor like Projetl-X did. 

However, For the budget price of a tod unoW t 
tenner I don't think anyone's oot any ground* w 
complaint, Cardiaxx plays fairly well ond ok 
never be described as stow poeed affair. 

In fact, if there's one slight criticism it's a Ink ~~ 
fast and the control never enables you to nei 
your ship motionless- Attempting ta slow results 
inverting la travel in the opposite direction, v 
can be quite annoying until you masker your *a 
control. 

Cardiaxx reminds me very much of the shew 
'em-ops from the eighties; straightforward, no hoc 
barred blasting with few complications and Air 
gies. Though il's not their best effort of bte, lor 
tenner it's got to be warfc it- 

simqn cum 



knots - 50Hi to be technically correct 

You respond lo the enemy via your on board 
droid who passes on audio messages informing 
you where the exactly the foe are, There's also a 
nice little graphical arrow which paints you m the 
right direction in case you're like me and can't tell 
your right from your left, 

Once you're in the thick of it, not only da you 
hove to use your skill to knock those nasty, bully 
"gang up on one littfe space ship would you" 
aliens, but it's 
all agoinst 
the clock. 

If you toke 
too long over the 
task In hand It's curtains for 
you and your ship is destroyed. 

Unlike many space shool-'em-ups 
where your ship can absorb only one 
enemy shot or be involved in 
one collision, Cardiaxx 




rinnhK 

. \^ T ^- 



is made of sterner stuff. 

Although yo*fi spaceship has a finite 
amount of energy, you can take a 
number of hits, the damage being 
reflected by an ever-diminishing 
energy bar, 

Once you've seen off various 
types of centipede and other suchlike 
alierii, there's a minx of a level 
guardian to contend wfi. 

Also at the end of each level there's 
special Deep-Space bonus xane where 
the aim is la eradicate as many of 
the pesky vermin 01 passible in a 
given lime, 
four ship also has me ability to

H his is the Christmas issue, and no doubt, as in 
■■ bristmases post, many new Amiga owners will 
join the fold. Since it is now almost impassible 
to obtain in Amiga without hearing somtsbing about 
Afiexx (unless the only tiling you do with you* machine Is 
play games . I '.\.ill take diis opportunity to present a gerv- 
eral overview of the language, its history ami Its bash 

principles. 

Obviously, in a small space Bke this I cannot hope to 

convey more ihan an impression of ihe language, and 

newcomers warning a more detailed overview should 

ohtain an irtnoductory book on Afiecc, such as die «k

language called Rexx, It first appeared in I983 created by 
[UM's Mike Cjnwlinshaw Its purpose was to provide a 
good general-purpose utfflty language for MM'* ^.sterns 

Rexx was not originally designed to run on mkJOS, but 
on large mainframe machines, Its design criteria were sim- 
plicity, praitiLaltly and usability. 

Rexx did Indeed turn out so lx very simple and intu- 
itive to use, despite In power and versatility, Its com- 
mands were English-like, and its overall "fed" was even 
easla to master thin Bask: It was ilso very good at has-

v< iu wonderedi "['his mouthful simply means <hat it is an 
executor (a control language), it \* extended tiki 1 - many 
new features), and it has been redesigned lor tauer pjm- 
gram slnitlure. 

I In.- was in relation to Rest's predecessors, among 
ilvin a simple language called Exec, whk'h h of course, 
slumld 11; ii U'cnliiM-d w\-l die Amiga's ' l '■-'.■'. -'.-r^- 

Now, quJte a few prognunmers took to Resx. won over 
by its ability to make tricky and tedious jobs easy, and it 
became popular on many platforms, Vet all this was lu|>- 
fK'tiing in the world t.A large maehines Lind tlteir arcane 
operating systems, and w n as oi liule. it any, relevance to 
the world ol personal computing. 

However, the popularity of Ki'xx would not kl it stay 
confined to its birthpbee, and eventuaS; a lew versions 
staned a < s\ pear Sat the MS*DOS pLiEfonm. 

One of them, Personal Resx, managed tt> attract a fair 
folkiwing. but even 50, it was Itanlly a mainstream lan- 
guage; more of a lirtk gem for those "in (he know". 



Pi raonal Hem also provided an interface through which 

oal appKcarkms could use the Hess language as il n was their 

own 

This was pmhably uk- dawn ol .iiiiinis.ition interfeces in the 
Utexx style. It meant that software applications could now 
share a corcmoo, powerful senpt language, and no longer had 
to supply ilieii own often inferics versions, 

It also meant tltit software designers no longer had to rein- 
\ent the ^Jn.xi eaeh litue iIk j v needed a script language lor an 
application, and user* didn't need to leant a different bnguage 
for every different program they used 

LESS EXPERIENCED 

To gL>t back to ARess-. I often cannot help feeling that a

.After all it dtjes four separate jobs, any one of which v,

However, Hw first appearance 
Rent on e mullitasklng micro w 
due to a programmer called I 
Hawes. who had the foresight . 
see how well the Amiga and this 
new language could integrate. 

His Implementation of ARexx 
on the Amiga, appearing In 1947. 
won a good following, especially 
among more serious program- 
mers who appreciated its chore- 
tightening effects. 

However. It was still some time 
before Commodore acknowl- 



Bill's vision 



iRexx in the 
Workbench 2.0 operating system. 
By then, enough software ven- 
dors had seen the advantages ol 
ARexx to ensure that most major 
Amiga products had an ARexx 
interface. 

In the meantime, IBM had not 
tailed to notice the potential ol 
fiexx either, lis popularity on the 



big machines led them to incor- 
porate It Into their OS/2 micro- 
computer operating system. 

This is significant because 
OS/2 is a true multitasking sys- 
tem, tike the Amiga's, anrt 
many ways superior to the hugely 
popular but awkward Windows. 

In a sense, this justified Bill 
Hawes' vision of the language s 
potential. As OS/2 gains populari- 
ty, the Rexx family of languages 
could become quite important in 
the personal computing scene,

IV. 

.Hi 



firstly, AJtaot's job as a DOS enhancer, Have you ever needed an 
AraigaDOS command h; do a special joh„ hui liII you owld find was a 
very- rough equivalent that didn't leaJy meet vow requirements- 

Perhaps ii didn't haw the options you wanted, en only did half the 
things you needed? Mayb* you tried do write an AmigaDQS batch file 
id automate a cask, kit turned grey trying to figure out the weird con- 
trol structures' DkJ you wish tht iv was :i simpler way? 

TheJE is. and il is allied ARexx! Because il can work together with 
\inigaDQS, it's easy it: devise custom commands, leased twi existing 
oes, You do not have to duplicate dibit, just atld your specifications. 

Should you want something flashier than the QJ interface, you i an 
use special libraries to link to the graphical Intuition environment, and 
add your own custom requesters, menus and the like. 

ubd, unlike regular inteqxeters such as Basic, you do nut have iu 
load up the whole language even- lime vou want to run a prtigrjin: 
mice loaded AHexx Stays inconspicuously in llie background ready to 
l>e used as needed. 

But ultimately, die main reason for Mu n a success is our second 
task, iis flexibility as ;i programming language. After all die grammar 
of a language and its Links to die liosi system an.- two separate issues, 
and any old script language could have lx.m boiled on. 

Several script languages arc already in existence as pan o\ software 
packages, and if you have used any of litem, you will teem hem lim- 
iting they can lie. 

AKcxa, on the oilier kind has all ihe features d a modem fiigh- 
lewd language, and supports modular and structured programming. 

Let me stress here that Attexx is bulk for comfort, not for speed, 
Tin. 1 speed ot AKew lies, nut in how fast it tuns irs programs, but in 
how fast it lets you write them 

ARexx does not have separate data, types, so you do not have 10 
declare integers, floating points or arrays 81 llie beginning til your 
program, 

Everything is treated as a. string ol characters, and this simplifies 
tilings no end - and not just lor (lie lieginner! Altexx also has out 
sanding facilities for handling tanks and arrays, with minimal effort 



i. in the user's jiari Overall, it le(v you approach all programming 
dunes with a minimum of sei-up requirements (ftw ,i detailed discus 
sic hi nl this, see tike last two issues). 

Some people (eel that .ill this power can lead inexperienced users 
into pitfalls, but I think that this is far outweighed by the advantages. 

1 ince they get into it. even people who have never programmed 
before are surprised at how rnuch diey can do. ARm will support 
rigorous programming just as well as 'quick and dhtj ' hacks io get a 
joh done. 

Many appllcstiQns can benefit In mi Ihe addition of a script. If you 
have ever sat in Iront oi a screen perforating repetitive actions with a 
mouse, and wishing titai you could go awav and let die ni;i< lime do 
die ji'jh, you can .see die advantages. 

CUSTOM COMMANDS 

On the Amiga, (lie applications thai make most use of Afiexx arc 
animation, graphics, modem communications and DTP. Obviously 
each application will specify its ow n custom commands - to simulate 
menu selections, for Instance - and on the wlmk- diese will he differ 
eat in each package and unrclatiil to ARexx. However, the control 
language that ties everything together (loops, IS-' statements, etx I is 
the same, 

Finally, we have interprocess communication, which is the ii.n-n 
al extension of scripts, and unique to the Amiga implementai ii i 
'Hi is allows programs to communicate with each other direcrJ) 

The best way to understand ihis is with some examples: A word- 
p KXSBQf could control a DTP program, setting die text as soon as it 
is finislied. a dafGabase could control some presentation software, giv- 
ing impressive graphic updates of its contents, a modem could con- 
trol a remote robot, and su i in. 

Well, I hope thus has gone some way towards whetting your 
appetite almul the ARexx beast, and maybe even given you some 
ideas fen your own use. Thanks to the more seasoned AKexx users 
for bearing with me; we will recommence our mure technical sorties 
from die next, issue. 



ARexx could be 
the Amiga's 
best kept secret. 
Alex Gian opens 
the lid on the 
language, its 
history and 
myriad of uses

Questions fly back and forth across the neisbbour- 
md- some cynical; oh, you fency youiseU as .1 hot shot dlrec- 
do you? - some irritating really, how tatmstingi How 
lid you say your budget watf - others "endearing*] will jrou 
•member me when you're rich and famous? 

il maybe a touch exagerated Pre-production is the nest 

link in the chain of production. Many films may start with a 

script ! <u 1 so wrong through kick ol real preparation ami 

sht on the pun of the makers 

The ftrat obstacle to overcome is how you warn to shoot the 

Jeo This introduces the iliru-i tor's hi hie - the story hoards. 

these art made up from a series of boxes where pictures are 

■ 1 1 depicting each shot of the feature. 

vs.ide each of these are descriptions of the individual shot 

nd whatever dialogue or action happens within them, You don't 

xed to be an accomplished jitisr to make up the storyboards, 

nple stick-men style drawings are sufficient for producing 

ething thai you and your future ctew can work from. 

' you're si ill not happy with the results, get a friend to do 

: tin or simply construct a written snot list giving a description 

each one in the film 50, ai the very least, you'll go on a shoot 

bowing exactly what shots you want, not necessarily how- you 

them 10 look, While if i.s Important to remember thai a cleaj

Behind the scenes 

f you've ev&r wondered whai all Iho&e masses of jobs were in 
J» credits of your favourite film, then here is the list for a "skeie- 
tjn'crew. 

Small crews generally work tt>e laslesl so keep numbers to a 
-imimum by doubling people's roles up. It's best to lake an extra 
on around with you as well lo help lug gear and look after i! 
**ien everyone is focused on their jobs, wh*ch are: 

3 R0DUCER - In 1he real world, this guy or gal is the employer 
rfw hires and fires everyone including the director. They're the 
:ne who hunt money out ol its hiding place to leed into fie film. 

DIRECTOR - Just the person who leads tie team and calls the 
shots.., easy life! 

ADDUCTION ASSISTANT - The director's nanny. Helps with 

* tie paperwork, drawing up schedules, crew lists and anything 
•be which can be thought of. 

Frequently seen standing round on Ihe set with a dock casual- 
iviog " two minutes left for Ihis snot" while everyone else runs 
^und like chickens wtth their heads cut off, 

Can be doubled up as a locaton manager who finds the differ- 
ent settings for your film and Ihen gels permission 10 use them 

Iree wtth Iheir superb negotiation skills. 

JGHTING CAMERA OPERATOR - The ayes of Ihe director. 

3ocd camera operators can bring their own ideas lo the direc- 

* s vision wilnout stepping on anyone's creative loes. 

They can also double as lighlmg designer, a much underestj- 
-ated job - it's not just a case of whacking a lew lights up and 
taking it look like Neighbours. 

50LTND RECORDIST - One of the most important jobs on the 
- ,v and rarely receives any recognition because Ihey don't 

•ave a funky piece of equipment to stmt around with, They can 

.-en make the difference belween a professional or amateur 

eduction. 
Also rolls tie videotape and performs spot checks, which is 

coking at the previously shot image to make sure that there is no 

asrolion or breaking up of the picture. 

3XTOR - The person who makes or breaks a film, A bad video 
an be made to look excellent and vice versa by editors working

final say, Due to the nature of a shoot where 
■1 '. il big 1 an happen, you'll find yotirx.lt 
making alterations whether it's due to weath- 
er, circumstances beyond your control or 
simply because you've changed your mind 
about In iv. it is to be shot, 

Don't be afraid to do this: The more 
research done at this stage, the better your 
ire-tines will serve you on the actual day and 

it will Jtunnalk runi out H*1h. l right. 

With die storyboard 's finished, it's on to 
CM mid crew hunting, If the production is 
small then yourself and a feft friends, can do 
it but if you're Feeling brave and think that a 
more experienced crew jiiJ east are needed 
then place adverts in the local newspaper f<ir 
talent; try and gel (he local radio station 10 
pite you a little air itme; contact amateur dra- 
matic groups, drama schools and video clubs 
if there are any in ihe area. 

It's always best to u.sk. 10 see people's work 
via iheir showix-cls. A short Interview 10 
make sure they are enthusiastic Line o filial 




Choosing 
your crew 



ted should lie enough to give you a fair idea of what kind of 
pefsou they are. 

The same principle applies to the acting; auditions Lire some 
times not that useful. Nerves of (he moment tan help to pnj- 
duce a had performance thai does not do tlieii talent justice. 

The rood important element to the selection process is the 
interview. The kind ol rapport struck up between the actor and 
yourself is very important with regards to how well they'll 
receive instruction and bow confident they ait on set Look after 
your actors; decent ones ait few and far between. 

If this all sounds a li|t(e nightmarish, jonr worry - its layout

Picking up from a satellite server 



I'm open for enquiries on the Internet. CIX, and all matters BBS, so 
why not send me a nole by snail mail or email"? This month's question 
s from Christopher Rea on CIX, He wants to know how to get the 
satellite pictures from Imperial College via CIX. He said he'd tried to 
use a Gopher server but il dtdrt'l deliver the gooes. Well, Chris, Ihey 
rarely do. I always prefer to wade m manually and surl the Inlemet by 
hand. Us easy. From the MAIN; prompt on CIX, simply type: 



and you're in. Use cd ar-d dir to find your way to Ihe wealher/pics 
directory as described in Ihe mag. Then when you find the gifs or 
jpeg files in the directory (I Ihink it was mentioned in the mag) you 
type; 



kl.gif 



then el the tp> type; 




or whatever the hie name is. This sends the lite to CIX from IC. 
Then when you got all Ihe files you want you QUIT out of The IP by 
typing: 



quit 



foC.lt.14, ul 



1 



When Imperial College asks you to log in type: 



FTF 



and when it asks tor your password type: 




then you are at ihe ip? prompt again Do a dlr to see what fites you 
got, Then SEND them from CIX to you by typing; 



k.m.ul 



wh ch will send all Ihe files to you one by one. You can use AD Pro 
or ViewTek (on a Fish disk) to look at the piclures.

ne of the most common computing operations koon n 

to man is the stal Ifou take .1 list of numbers or letter 
and sort them into a spedfk oitlei either first tit! hist or 
set till first, 

This doesn't Mice a great distil of artifldaJ intelligence, as 

-r nl the things on which these dedsioos are based Is median- 
Does this word stan with an A or doefirt'l It? That kind of 

In Lht' past we've had to construct our own ports from oilier 

uunamk and nuke them do the job. But Amos is jn exception 

pet again, ad it lias a built-in son function. 

OK so it's not very smart and in order to get it to sort anythinji; 

1 6wq way youVe still got to resort to same fancy program- 

I hui nevertheless n works and it saves you a lot 

■J' time if all yew want to do b stuff some strings in ,m array and 

them qui the ouW end as soon aa possible and in' rank 

order. 

stag SORT a easy, all you need is a variable fa n to act 

■I. The variable it nets on is always an array. An array, in case 

wver studied Baak in ooflege, is a variable which holds 

lore than ope value in a number of electronic pigeon hofea h 

il like thai 

;■:■! atttJ 
Sort rt(B) 

iik- that In these examples a and a| are arrays, the first ohvious- 
rontaining numeric data foumbere) and the second cortlalning 

alphanumeric data < letter?.) otherwise known as string, 

The SORT function returns your a nay in a sorted form of 
ding order This means 1,2.3,-1,5... rather than descending 

di • which would be .5,43,2,1. In the ease or words nr letters 
alphalieticai order is the order of the day, 

This function works in the same way in both Amos I'm and 
tegular Amos. An allied function Is MATCH, which searches an 
already sorted array for a spedfk value. When it find* the value 
r puts the index (the location in the array) into a variable which 
you can retrieve later. 

So a basic array loader goes like this: 



0-.1 jdrji 






First Dimension the aoay, in this case ten numbers. Then set up 
a loop to fill the array with numbers which yew input: 



Far M is ID 
Jnou-t IU) 

HtO n 






wnen you get to the bottom of the list, the numbers you put in 

must be displayed. If you do ibis: 




then each number you put in will be printed in the order yuu put 
it in. fine. But what if you wanted them sorted into numerical 
order? Simple;

MATCH fHLs a variable with the location of

This is the part where i set

starters, can you figure out a 
way to align the floating point
